Inscription.  
Since the 1800s, the Cuyahoga Valley has been a place where people from nearby cities relax in nature. Building on this tradition, locals worked tirelessly to preserve what is now Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Created in 1974, the park protects open countryside, a canal that helped build the nation, and the river that sparked the Clean Water Act. Hunt House
Everett is a type of rural crossroads community that was once common across America. Cross the road to Hunt House. Family friendly exhibits explore village life and the lives of wild plants and animals. Continue a quarter-mile north on the towpath to Lock 27 for another peek into the past. Beaver March, popular for wildlife watching, is three-quarters of a mile south.

[Caption:]
It is in the valleys that one can realize most effectively a sense of isolation and freedom from the sights and sounds…which go to make the modern city. Olmstead Brothers, Landscape architects who proposed a Cuyahoga Valley park in 1925.
