Inscription.  
John F. Seiberling put the democratic process to work for the park, mustering support at all levels from citizenry to government. In the 1960s, he encouraged park studies, Ohio Department of Natural Resources involvement, and citizen activism.

Elected to the U.S. Congress in 1970, he immediately introduced legislation to create a Federal park. Congress ignored this first bill in part because it did not hear enough community interest. The defeat energized Seiberling to organize louder support. In 1974, Congress easily passed his new bill to create Cuyahoga Valley National Park. President Ford signed it into law after Seiberling mobilized Ohio political leaders to convince him of the park idea's popularity.
 
Erected by National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior.
