Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

In the archives business you get babies dropped on the doorstep much like a firehouse does. These orphan donations often have little to no information attached and can go years without identification. The local historical organizations have a large collection of these photographs and could use some help identifying people, locations, dates or anything else in the images. If you can identify anything in this photograph please email, and thanks for helping preserve Summit¹s
