  1. I was hoping their was an article about the cannon attached tk this thread. I didn’t grow up in these parts and Im interested in Barberton history.

  2. I remember it but the cannon I played on was at Edgewood Park on the Westside up by the “Big Rock” which is still there.

    • Yeah! The breech still in operated until 1968 when all display cannon were deactivated by the Federal government. I remember playing on it too!

I've worked at several occupations throughout my life including journalist, photographer and chef/owner of Micheala's Cafe. Local history is one of my first loves. I sit on the board of the Wadsworth Area Historical Society and a member of the River Styx Historical Society. Being a resident of Barberton for the past fifteen years I have become interested in Barberton area history as well.
