The valley began providing recreation for urban dwellers in the 1870s when people came from nearby cities for carriage rides or leisure boat trips along the canal. In 1880, the Valley Railroad became another way to escape urban industrial life. Actual park development began in the 1910s and 1920s with the establishment of Cleveland and Akron metropolitan park districts. In 1929 the estate of Cleveland businessman Hayward Kendall donated 430 acres (1.7 km2) around the Richie Ledges and a trust fund to the state of Ohio. Kendall's will stipulated that the "property should be perpetually used for park purposes". It became Virginia Kendall park, in honor of his mother. In the 1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps built much of the park's infrastructure including what are now Happy Days Lodge and the shelters at Octagon, Ledges, and Kendall Lake.
Although regional parks safeguarded certain places, by the 1960s local citizens feared that urban sprawl would overwhelm the Cuyahoga Valley's natural beauty. Active citizens joined forces with state and national government staff to find a long term solution. Finally, on December 27, 1974, President Gerald Ford signed the bill establishing the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area. The area was redesignated a national park by Congress on October 11, 2000, with the passage of the Department of the Interior and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2001, House Bill 4578, 106th congress. It is administered by the National Park Service. David Berger National Memorial in Beachwood, Ohio is also managed through Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
The Richfield Coliseum, a multipurpose arena in the Cuyahoga River area, was demolished in 1999 and the now-empty site became part of Cuyahoga Valley National Park upon its designation in 2000. It has since become a grassy meadow popular with birdwatchers.
Many visitors spend their time hiking or bicycling the parks' many trails which visit its numerous attractions, including the crushed limestone along portions of the 20 miles (32.2 km) Towpath Trail, following a former stretch of the 308 miles (495.7 km) Ohio and Erie Canal.
Waterfalls, rolling hills, caves, winding river scenery attract many park visitors. Steep narrow ravines, a rolling floodplain, and lush farmland contrast one another throughout the park. Animal life is also plentiful. The Ledges provides a boulder-strewn cliff to relax and watch the sunset over the wooded scenery below. Sled-riding is popular during the winter at Happy Days Park.
The park offers an array of preserved and restored displays of 19th and early 20th century sustainable farming and pastoral or rural living, while catering to contemporary interests with art exhibits, outdoor concerts, and scenic excursion and special event railroad tours on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.
It includes compatible-use sites not owned by the federal government, including several local regional parks in the Cleveland Metroparks and Metro Parks, Serving Summit County systems, Blossom Music Center, and the Hale Farm & Village. In the mid 1980s, the park hosted the National Folk Festival.
Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail
The multi-purpose Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath trail was developed by the National Park Service and is the major trail through Cuyahoga Valley National Park. From it visitors can make connections to many of the natural and historic sites in the park and to other trails that intersect it along the way. or through one of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park visitor centers.
The Towpath Trail follows the historic route of the Ohio & Erie Canal. Before the canal was built, Ohio was a sparsely settled wilderness where travel was difficult and getting crops to market was nearly impossible. The canal, built between 1825 and 1832, provided a successful transportation route from Cleveland, on Lake Erie, to Portsmouth, on the Ohio River. The canal opened up Ohio to the rest of the settled eastern United States.
Today visitors can walk or ride along the same path that the mules used to tow the canal boats loaded with goods and passengers. The scene is different than it was then; the canal was full of water carrying a steady flow of boats amongst the constant conversations of "canawlers." Evidence of beavers can be seen in many places along the trail.
Stanford House (Formerly Stanford Hostel)
Located in the scenic Cuyahoga Valley near Peninsula, Ohio, Stanford House is a historic nineteenth-century farm home built in the 1830s by George Stanford, one of the first settlers in the Western Reserve. In 1978, the NPS purchased the property to act as a youth hostel in conjunction with the American Youth Hostels (AYH) organization. In March 2011, Stanford Hostel became Stanford House, Cuyahoga Valley National Park's first in-park lodging facility. The home was renovated by the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the National Park Service.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park - Visitor Centers Coordinates Visitor Center Address Description
Canal Canal Road & Hillside Road, Valley View, Ohio 44125,
1½ miles south of Rockside Road
Canal Visitor Center contains exhibits and a bookstore. Exhibits illustrate 12,000 years of history in the valley, including the history of the canal. The canal-era building once served canal boat passengers waiting to pass through Ohio & Erie Canal Lock 38. Canal lock demonstrations are conducted seasonally on weekends by National Park Service staff and by volunteers wearing period costumes. A 20-minute slide program about the park and three, 30-minute videos on canal history are shown on request. Happy Days State Route 303,
1 mile west of State Route 8,
2 miles east of the Village of Peninsula, Ohio
Happy Days was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1938 and 1939 as a camp for urban children. The visitor center offers information and a variety of activities, including concerts, lectures, plays, and special events. A 20-minute slide program about the park is shown on request. Several hiking trails are located nearby. Boston Store Boston Mills Road,
1/10 of a mile east of Riverview Road
Boston Store was constructed in 1836 and has been used as a warehouse, store, post office, and gathering place. It is now a museum featuring exhibits relating to canal boat-building. Hunt Farm Bolanz Road,
between Akron-Peninsula Road and Riverview Road
The Hunt Farm property is typical of the small family farms that dotted the Cuyahoga Valley in the late 19th century. Here you can get information about park activities and see exhibits about the area's agricultural history. Next to the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, it is an ideal starting point for a hike or a bicycle ride. Frazee House Canal Road, Valley View, Ohio,
3½ miles south of Rockside Road
The Frazee House was constructed in 1825 and 1826, during the same years the northern section of the Ohio & Erie Canal was dug. It is a fine example of a Western Reserve home and features exhibits relating to architectural styles, construction techniques, and the Frazee family. Peninsula Depot 1630 West Mill Street, Village of Peninsula, Ohio 44264,
north of State Route 303
The Peninsula Depot was originally located in the village of Boston, just north of Boston Mills Road. It was moved to Peninsula in the late 1960s. The building may be the only surviving combination station from the Valley Railway, which operated between Cleveland, Ohio and Tuscarawas County, Ohio in the late 19th century. Today the Peninsula Depot serves as an information and orientation center for people on foot, bike, and rail, and serves as a station for Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad (CVSR) excursions. Exhibits highlight the history and recreational opportunities of the area.
Points of historic interest
Coordinates Location Description Canal Visitor Center - "Hell's Half Acre" Exhibits related to human history in the valley and Ohio & Erie Canal history are available at Canal Visitor Center. The exhibits are housed in a renovated canal-era tavern that, for some time, had such a colorful reputation that it came to be called "Hell's Half Acre." Lock 38 is located in the front; lock demonstrations are offered by volunteers and staff in period costume every Saturday, Sunday, and holiday during the summer months. A lock model is located inside the visitor center. The ranger at the information desk will perform lock model demonstrations on request. An auditorium in the basement is used to show three different canal-related videos and one park orientation slide program. These programs will be run on request. Ohio & Erie Canal Related Structures The Ohio & Erie Canal was constructed between 1825 and 1832. It successfully provided Ohio with a transportation system that permitted residents to conduct trade with the world. While it stopped functioning after the great flood of 1913, remnants and ruins of canal-related structures can be seen alongside the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail. Wayside exhibits explain the function of many of the structures visible from the trail. Our Towpath Trail Sites to Visit list may be useful in directing you to the points of greatest interest. Frazee House The Frazee House was under construction in 1825 when the canal was dug through its front yard. It's a great place to visit for information about Western Reserve architecture and construction techniques as well as some tidbits about the Frazee family. Boston Store This early canal-era building was owned by the Boston Land & Manufacturing Company. The Boston Store now houses numerous exhibits relating to canal boat building. Everett Road Covered Bridge The Everett Road Covered Bridge was constructed after a local resident was killed attempting to cross the swollen Furnace Run in 1877. It was destroyed by storm floodwaters in 1975 and reconstructed by the National Park Service in 1986. It is the only covered bridge in Summit County today. The bridge is located on Everett Road about 5/10 of a mile west of Riverview Road near Everett Village. Brandywine Village Brandywine Village was conceived and founded by George Wallace, who built a sawmill next to Brandywine Falls in 1814. He encouraged others to move to the area, including his brother-in-law, who built a grist mill on the opposite side of the falls. With inexpensive land available and the presence of mills to provide lumber, flour, and corn meal, the Village of Brandywine began to grow. Today only a couple of buildings remain from the village but historic photos and remnants of building foundations allow us to remember the Brandywine Village that once was. Civilian Conservation Corps Structures The Civilian Conservation Corps was responsible for the construction of some of the most attractive buildings in the valley. Happy Days Visitor Center as well as the Ledges, Octagon, and Lake Shelters were built of wormy American Chestnut wood in the late 1930s. These structures can be found in the Virginia Kendall Unit of the park. The George Stanford House James Stanford moved to Boston Township immediately after surveying and naming it in 1806. He and with his wife Polly and son George were the first homesteaders in what is today Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). His son George built a stately Greek revival home in about 1830. That home, located at 6093 Stanford Road, now serves as the Cuyahoga Valley HI-Stanford Hostel. National Register of Historic Places This page contains a complete list of National Register of Historic Places locations within CVNP. Some of these locations are privately owned. Hale Farm & Village Hale Farm & Village is an outdoor living history museum that is just a few miles and 150 years away. Costumed "pioneer" interpreters describe life in the Western Reserve during the formative years of the United States of America. The village features 21 historic buildings to tour and many talented craftspeople. It is operated by the Western Reserve Historical Society.
Craft demonstrations include glassblowing, candlemaking, broommaking, spinning & weaving, cheesemaking, blacksmithing, woodworking, sawmilling, hearth cooking, and pottery making. The farm also features oxen, sheep, cows, and gardens.
