Portage County, Ohio is located in the northeastern part of the state and is part of the Akron Metropolitan Statistical Area. It was established in 1807 and is named after the portage between the Cuyahoga and Tuscarawas Rivers. The county was originally part of the Connecticut Western Reserve, a tract of land given to the state of Connecticut by the federal government in 1786. The first settlers in the area were mostly of German and English descent, and the county was officially organized in 1808. The first county seat was Ravenna, which was established in 1808 and is still the county seat today. The county was an important part of the Underground Railroad, with many of the county's residents helping to hide and transport escaped slaves. The county was also home to several important battles during the War of 1812, including the Battle of Portage and the Battle of Fort Meigs. The county's economy was largely based on agriculture until the late 19th century, when the discovery of oil and natural gas in the area led to an industrial boom. The county is now home to several large companies, including Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, which has its headquarters in Akron. The county is also home to several colleges and universities, including Kent State University, the University of Akron, and Hiram College. The county is also home to several state parks, including the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which is the only national park in Ohio. Portage County is a vibrant and diverse community, with a rich history and a bright future.
