Akron High School, Akron, Ohio

Akron High School

Akron’s first high school was located on Forge Street, between College and Union Streets, facing Union Park; the school was established in 1857, but the structure pictured in this vintage postcard was not constructed until 1885. At the time, the building cost $135,000 -that’s about 3.5 million in today’s dollars.
