Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

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