Willoughby, Ohio - Facts & Figures
A suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, Willoughby's history is much like many other northern Ohio towns. The area was first inhabited by Native Americans, and then explored by French trappers in the 1700s. In 1787, David Abbott made a trip west from Rome, New York and liked what he saw. Eleven years later, Abbott acquired 200 acres of what is now Willoughby and got together a group of pioneers settled in the area of the Chagrin River. These adventurous and industrious people built a sawmill and gristmill.
Today, due to proximity and city-sprawl, Willoughby's economy and people are largely identical to Cleveland's.
