Akron /ˈækrən/ is the fifth-largest city in the U.S. state of Ohio and is the county seat of Summit County, the fourth most populous county in the state. The city is located in northeastern Ohio on the western edge of the Glaciated Allegheny Plateau, approximately 39 miles (63 km) south of Lake Erie and was co-founded along the Little Cuyahoga River in 1825 by Simon Perkins and Paul Williams. The name derived from the Greek word "ἄκρον" signifying a summit or high point. Due to Eliakim Crosby founding "North Akron" (Cascade) in 1833, "South" was added to the city's name until the two merged into an incorporated village in 1836. Neighboring settlements Kenmore and Ellet were annexed in 1929. As of the 2015 Census Estimate, the city proper had a total population of 197,542, making Akron the 119th largest city in the United States, and the fifth largest city in Ohio....
