History of the Township. “Early development in the Township was encouraged by the construction of Wooster Road and Montgomery Road in the 1820’s and by the construction and extension of several railroad lines beginning in the 1840’s. The railroad lines also prompted the founding of two commuter communities, Madeira and Terrace Park.” (Submitted on May 23, 2019, by J. J. Prats of Powell, Ohio.)
