Celeste Crouch has lived in Litchfield Park for almost 40 years and my three children grew up here and attended local schools. Litchfield Park has a very special history and Mr. Paul Litchfield, the Founder, was a very special man. After reading the Thesis from 1948 written by Susan Smith on the early History of this area I was hooked.
Celeste founded the Litchfield Park Historical Society in the Fall of 2000 and the first Organizational Meeting was held in March of 2001. With the help of Ruth Byrnes, early resident of Litchfield Park, and now an active member of the Glendale Historical Society, we wrote a Mission Statement and By-Laws. Local residents, Peggy & Dick Vasiloff, are from Akron, Ohio where the Goodyear Tire Rubber Company has its headquarters. While there they visited the University of Akron where our early archives are stored and brought back pictures and copies of our early history. With this great information we were able to get started with the history we needed as Goodyear Corp. was very good at taking pictures and keeping history. Since this time we have added many pictures and more history through the years.
In November of 2013 a Book on the early history of Litchfield Park was published by Arcadia Publishers in their Images of America series. It is now available in local area stores.
