Summit Summit County and the Great War

Summit County and the Great War is a collaborative partnership between the Akron-Summit County Public Library, Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, Summit County Historical Society and the University of Akron Archival Services, formed to commemorate Summit County's contribution to the U.S. war effort during World War One (1917-1918).

In addition to a map of World War I-related county locations, community partners, and digital resources made available through Summit Memory and its contributors, this site also contains a schedule of activities that lists information about a number of commemorative programs, events and activities taking place within Summit County, Ohio, from 2017-2018.

For additional resources and a listing of programs and activities happening around Ohio and the nation, visit the United States World War One Commission's website at www.worldwar1centennial.org.

The commemoration of Summit County and the Great War is supported in part by the Ohio History Connection.
