Thinking about what’s next can’t be done unless we also hold space to acknowledge what was there before.

As part of the Reconnecting Our Community initiative, we’re launching an oral history archive effort to preserve and share stories of the neighborhood that existed prior to the Innerbelt. The archive will be housed in Special Collections at the Akron-Summit County Public Library. We’ll also be sharing highlights from these stories on this website in the coming months.
