A Little History
Mantua Village (pronounced, "MAN-a-way") is located along the Cuyahoga River (known by native inhabitants as the "Crooked River") in Portage County. From its humble beginnings in the early 1800s, with its railroad station, 13 saloons, house of "ill repute" and a shipping point for area farmers, Mantua Village was formed and quickly began to grow. A Post Office was established in 1860 and the Village was incorporated in 1898. Our town, named after a famous city in Northern Italy, has continued to grow and mature. It is a beautiful, peaceful village, filled with historic buildings and friendly people who care.
Mantua is located on Ohio State Route 44, ten miles north of Ravenna (the Portage County Seat), twenty miles northeast of Akron, and twenty-seven miles southeast of Cleveland. Today, with access to the Ohio Turnpike just two miles to the south and access to US Route 422 seven miles to the north, we believe that this area will soon be the fastest-growing and most sought-after region in Northeast Ohio. Clean air, beautiful countryside, and excellent schools, backed up by sound zoning and facilitated planned growth, make Mantua Village a most desireable place to live and work.
We invite you to investigate the potentials of this exciting corridor that runs between Cleveland and Youngstown, and be assured that you, your family and your business will not only be welcome, but helped in every way possible. Come look us over and join with us in the wonderful years to come.
