Barberton’s Signs of the Times

When you look around town things have a erie look to them. Empty would be a better way of putting it. With the warm weather you would expect to see Tuscarawas Avenue busy with movie goers, diners and folks just walking around having fun. Lake Anna has some exercisers, but fewer than normal.

High winds from tornados leveled many of our trees and structures. Churches are empty for Easter. But don’t give up hope. We are Barberton strong.

Empty streets on a Thursday evening
Not a customer or movie goer in site
No movies on the marque.
Mother Nature had her way with the old bucket T on winks overhang
The body of the bucket T still sits on the awning
What the Bucket T looked like a decade ago

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.
