The Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce marks a milestone in 2015 as they celebrate 100 years since a group of community leaders pledged their financial support to establish a chamber of commerce in Orrville, Ohio. In this edition of Orrville Today, we help celebrate the chamber by sharing historical tidbits about the chamber and the city of Orrville throughout this guide (marked with the chamber logo). Many citizens contributed updates to the 26th edition of the Orrville Community Guide to provide the public with the most relevant, accurate information. Orrville Today includes current government official contacts, attractions, public services, recreational groups and more. Visitors and citizens alike will also find information about the community’s economy, demographics, history and education. Local merchants and services make this publication possible, so please pay them a visit whenever possible and help Orrville keep growing. To ensure the quality of this product, Spectrum Publications asks that anyone with information that would help make the 2016 edition more complete, please contact the main office, 330-264-1125.

Message from the Mayor After ďŹ nishing up our 150th yearlong celebration in 2014, Orrville is rolling right through 2015 and as we hit the busy summer season there is lots to do. Our annual Fire Fighters Association, 4th of July Celebration will kick things off with a bang with the usual parade, carnival, huge softball tournament and of course one of the best ďŹ reworks displays you could want to see. Parade is Tuesday June 30th and the Fireworks will be on the 4th this year beginning at about 10:00pm. The Rotary Firecracker 5K will be on the 4th, starting at 8:30 near Orr Park and Orrville Christian Church, on Elm Street. The girls fast pitch tournament will feature nearly 100 teams this year, as this tournament continues to grow to one of the best tournaments around with teams from 6-8 different states attending. As we hit August, the 4th OHS all class Reunion will join forces with the Orrville Lions Club the weekend of Aug.14,15 and 16 for the Rib and Music Fest. All class reunions for OHS alumni have been held in 2000, 2005,2010 and now 2015. The Orrville Lions club have done a terriďŹ c job of growing the Rib and Music Fest into a great weekend event. Orrville is still extremely lucky to have a great industrial base that is doing very well with several expansion projects still continuing at the J. M. Smucker Co., Will Burt, Orrville Chick Hatchery, Orrvilon and several others . Along with our growing industries, we continue to see commercial improvement all over town. Portico Plaza, is still growing with another new restaurant to open soon.

While interest in a hotel cooled a bit last year, that interest has been rekindled this year and things look very promising for that to become a reality in 2016. Orrville continues to be serviced very well by our electric, water and wastewater utilities. We are very fortunate to have all three here in town. The future will look a little different in the “electric� world of utilities for us and costs will increase, as they will for everyone all over the country, as we move to different forms of energy production. Every issue for the last 10 years probably had something about new school construction in it but this year with our school campus complete, I can just say that we are very happy with the way everything has turned out and the campus is serving our community very well. 2015 will also have some street paving and construction going on with some residential streets being re-paved and some new street construction going on at the east end of High street. The intersection of Main and High will be widened to allow for a better turning radius for both cars and trucks. So our 151st year will again be a busy one and we look forward to serving our citizens with the best service possible, from our Utility Departments, Safety Service Department, Street Department, Finance Department, Police and Fire Departments. -Thanks and have a great 2015, Mayor Dave Handwerk

Living in Orrville

Guide to Living in Orrville The following are some topics of interest to the citizens of Orrville. For more information, visit the city’s website (www.orrville. com) and click on “Citizen’s Handbook.” Animals – Animals are prohibited from running free within the city limits. All dogs must be licensed through the Orrville Veterinary Clinic, the Wayne County Humane Society (Wooster) or the Wayne County Auditor’s Office (Wooster). There are to be NO animals in city parks. Any animal (other than domestic dogs and cats), which in their wild state are carnivorous or which are capable of inflicting serious physical harm, are not permitted in the city. This would include animals which belong to the cat family or snakes which are poisonous or can cause physical harm (including all constrictors, bears, wolverines, badgers, lions, tigers and other animals as determined by the safety-service director). Farm animals are conditionally approved if the building used to house the livestock or fowl is no less than 200 feet from all property lines, commercial raising or breeding for commercial purposes are on lots of five acres or more, or any livestock or fowl is kept at least 150 feet from any residence other than the person’s keeping such animal. Automobiles – Driver’s licenses and license plates are issued by Orrville’s motor-vehicle deputy registrar’s office, 1430 W. High St., Suite 3, 330-682-0440; Charles Audi, deputy registrar; motor vehicle titles may be obtained through the clerk of courts office at City Hall, 330-682-8932. Bicycles – Bicycles must obey all traffic regulations. Bicycles should be registered with the police department to help in recovery if they are lost or stolen. Bicycles may be ridden on sidewalks, but not on those in any business distrcit. There are to be NO bicycles in Orr Park. Building Permits – Building permits, required for all construction, are issued by the Wayne County building inspector, 428 W. Liberty St., Wooster, 330-287-5525. Before obtaining a building permit, one must first obtain a zoning permit from the Safety-Service Director’s office at City Hall, 330-684-5004. Cemeteries – The city operates two cemeteries: Orr Cemetery, at N. Mill and E. Church streets, and Crown Hill Cemetery, at Crown Hill Rd. and W. High St.; a mausoleum at Crown Hill Cemetery offers alternative choices for burial; for more information, call the City Hall, 330-684-5004 Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Curfew – For children younger than 14; 10 p.m.-5 a.m., Sunday-Thursday and 11 p.m.-5 a.m., Friday and Saturday. For youth ages 14-18: 11 p.m.-5 a.m., Sunday-Thursday and midnight-5 a.m., Friday and Saturday. Emergency Warning System – The city’s warning system consists of sirens and a cable-TV interrupter. The siren at Orr Park is also capable of sending voice messages, but the area of coverage is limited. Sirens are also located at the Lacy Service Center on E. Pine St.; Fire Station #2 on N. Crown Hill Rd.; in the industrial park on Collins Blvd., Beaver St. Park, and at the corner of N. Main St. and Smithville Rd. The sirens and cable television interrupter are tested periodically. During testing, the sirens are sounded for a short period. Anytime you hear the sirens sounding for longer than three minutes, you should assume there is a weather emergency, probably a tornado warning. You should

seek shelter immediately and check a radio or television for more details. In cases of another type of emergency, you may be required to evacuate your home or to stay indoors at your home for a period of time. The radio and/or television will be used to convey the message. In most circumstances, residents must also rely on a radio or television to determine when it is safe to resume normal activities. AN “ALL-CLEAR” WILL NOT BE SOUNDED BY THE SIRENS. You are urged not to call the police department or City Hall, as these lines must be kept open for emergency assistance requests only. All residents, businesses and industries should keep a battery-powered AM/FM radio for use in emergencies. It is also recommended residents own a battery-powered weather radio which gives emergency alerts of severe weather if kept in the alert mode. Weather websites: www.intellicast.com/weather/cle/nexrad, www.weather.com, and www.weathernet5.com. Local radio stations: WQKT, FM 104.5, AND WKVX AM 960. Garage Sales – The city has an ordinance requiring persons who wish to have a garage sale to get a permit from the safety-service department. There is no charge for the permit, but there is a limit on the number of days that a sale may be held, the signs (including where they may be placed), the “Guide” continued on page 9

“ANCHOR IN ORRVILLE” “Orrville has never experienced a greater wave of prosperity than at the present (1915)” A front page article in the December 10, 1915 edition of The Courier-Crescent newspaper proclaims a “giant wave of prosperity” with factories running at full force, additional workers needed, and a shortage of housing available in town.

This wave of prosperity is what prompted three young businessmen, H.C. Auble, D Edward Seas and Joseph Perilstein, to lead the effort of establishing a chamber of commerce in Orrville. Together they recruited 97 additional business and professional men for a total of 100 who on July 20, 1915 pledged to support the establishment of a Chamber of Commerce in Orrville, OH. “Anchor in Orrville” continued on page 11

Living in Orrville “Anchor in Orrville” continued from page 9

The Founders realized that the success and prosperity of their own businesses largely depended on the continued growth of the community. This understanding was demonstrated in an advertisement “The Orrville Home and Those Who Help to Make It” which ran in The CourierCrescent newspaper several times in the summer of 1915. All of the businesses included in the ad are founding members of the Orrville Chamber. The original constitution and by-laws, adopted December 29, 1915 stated the mission of the organization “shall be to promote the industrial, commercial, mercantile, manufacturing and general interests of Orrville and vicinity.” On February 8, 1916, the Chamber assembled at the town hall with 75 in attendance. Described in The Courier-Crescent as “The most enthusiastic and public spirited meeting ever held in Orrville was that of the first real meeting of the Chamber of Commerce.” President, D Ed Seas, co-owner of Seas & Sons Hardware, called the meeting to order and committee reports were given. S.P. Eshelman, reported for the good roads committee that they were working on establishing the road south of the city leading to the Lincoln Highway. Today this new road would be State Route 57 running south to connect to State Route 30. J.F. Dietz, chairman of the Industrial committee, reported that the committee was reviewing communications from several industries inquiring for locations.

Harry Flinn reported for the Publicity committee that they had several plans for the advertising of the organization including membership signs featuring the new slogan, Anchor in Orrville. Anchor in Orrville was selected by unanimous vote by the Chamber from a list of submissions that were published in The Courier-Crescent. The slogan was suggested by two individuals, M.C. Heller and J.D. Mullet. These gentlemen shared the two dollar prize, receiving a dollar each for their suggestion. The newspaper report of the committee concludes with this statement, “From the demonstrated spirit of the meeting, they have all anchored with one motive in view, that is for the betterment of Orrville.”

Orrville Today

Looking Back at Orrville

T

he two Rs in the word Orrville might well stand for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rail Road.â&#x20AC;? The city was originally conceived as a railroad stop, and the railroad drove virtually every aspect of its development over the years. Even today, the most casual of visitors to the city cannot escape the presence of the railroad, as there is almost no way to reach the heart of the downtown without having to cross at least one set of tracks. It was in about 1845 that the rural area around what is today Orrville was struck by â&#x20AC;&#x153;railroad fever,â&#x20AC;? and the phenomenon became the impetus for many meetings to debate its pros and cons. Judge Smith Orr, founder of the town â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and whose name it bears â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was the chief proponent of the railraods, pointing out they would help open up the wilderness and allow area farmers to reach broader markets than was possible with present transportation modes. Opponents of the railroads, however, did not want their farmlands ripped apart by construction for what they felt would be a passing fad. In 1848 when new railroad companies began looking to groups of private citizens to give them aid in crossing Ohio, Orr jumped at the chance to draw the railroad through Green and Baughman Townships in Wayne County. A deal was hammered out in which Orr was to get the residents of the two townships to raise $150,000 by buying stock at $50 per share. The City of Pittsburgh, Pa., was to raise $600,000 as its part of the deal. While Orr and partner Jesse Straughan readily raised the $150,000, Pittsburgh was unable to fulďŹ ll its part of the agreement. Straughan was then sent to Pittsburgh to represent the entire State of Ohioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s railroad interests.

7RS/HIW SKRWRFRXUWHV\RI2UU9LHZV-DQLVVXH10DLQ 6WUHHW²UHEXLOGLQJDIWHUĂ&#x20AC;UH 7RS5LJKW +RUVH%DUQV&RXUWHV\RI2UU9LHZV)HELVVXH 3KRWRE\2UUYLOOH+LVWRULFDO6RFLHW\:LQNOHU+RUVH7UDGLQJ%DUQV RSHUDWHGIURPWRDQGZHUHORFDWHGEHKLQGWKH 0DQVLRQ+RXVH+RWHORQWKHFRUQHURI:HVW0DUNHWDQG9LQH 6WUHHWV,WZDVVDLGWRKDYHEHHQRQHRIWKHODUJHVWKRUVHGHDOHUV ZHVWRI%XIIDOR1<

A new plan was constructed under which the city councils of Pittsburgh and Allegheny were to subscribe $200,000, with citizens expected to come up with the remaining $400,000. That goal was reached by 1850. To ensure that Green and Baughman Townships would not be bypassed by the railroad, Orr promised the Ohio and Pennsylvania Railroad that he would construct a water tank, a sawmill, and furnish free wood for fuel and ties for track. This served as adequate encouragement for the railroad to build through Orrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area. Orrville probably owes its existence to the fact it is situated in a direct line between Wooster and Massillon, both established in the early 1800s and main targets of the railroad line. Orr then persuaded Robert Taggart in Baughman Township to take 10 acres of his land and lay out 42 town lots, which Taggart sold for $50 each. Those lots were located north of the railroad tracks and east of Main Street. Then Orr entered into a partnership with William Gailey and built the promised water tank and saw mill southeast of Mill Street.

Orrville Gives a Hand to Handwerk

W

hen Dave Yost, Ohio Auditor, stopped by city hall last summer looking for the mayor, he wasn’t in the office. He was at the Smith Orr Homestead painting. Painting the Homestead was just one or many examples cited in letters submitted to the Citizen of the Year selection committee on behalf of a man who according to his son, Adam,“lives and breathes Orrville and has done so his entire life.” Mayor David T. Handwerk was surprised with the announcement that he had been selected as the 2014 Paul L. Powell Citizen of the Year at the Orrville City Council meeting on March 16. “Dave sees a need in his community and simply does what needs to be done.” remarked Lori Reinbolt, president, Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce who made the official announcement. His contributions exemplify what Powell meant when he referred to Orrville as “The Promised Land,” Handwerk, a 1971 graduate of Orrville High School worked on the paint line at Orrville Products while attending college classes in the evening at Kent State University extension (the predecessor of Wayne Collge.) He married wife Nancy in 1973 and graduated with a B.S. in Education from The Ohio State University in 1975. The Handwerk’s returned to Orrville and Dave began his career as an elementary physical education teacher in the Triway Local Schools. In 1985, he took a job in Orrville schools coaching the girls’ track team, and at the start of the 1985-86 school year got a fulltime teaching position in the district working at Maple Street Elementary. Handwerk coached women’s track for 17 years taking over 50 student athletes to the state track meet. The

28 - Orrville Today 2015

Smith Dairy Track meet was originally organized by Handwerk and even though he retired from teaching in 2007, he still works the event every year. “I try to promote Orrville through my words and actions every chance I get,” stated Jason Ayers, Physical Education Teacher and Track Coach, Orrville City Schools who admits that his attitude and behavior has been modeled after Handwerk, Ayers comment represents countless other young people that Handwerk impacted as a teacher, coach and community leader. In 1989, former Mayor Howard Wade approached Handwerk about filling a vacant seat on City Council. This was the beginning of 18 years of on council with 12 of those as council president before being elected Mayor, 2008. Handwerk is one of those people who has a job that is in the public eye. However, so much of what he does goes on behind the scenes. “Dave is constantly in the background of Orrville events,” commented Lyle Baker, president, Orrville City Council. Citing that the idea to have a car show for the Orrville Lion’s Club Rib and Music Fest on the lawn of the Smith Orr Homestead was Handwerk’s suggestion. While the position of Mayor is a part-time job, Handwerk has, from the beginning, chosen to give fulltime attention in service to his community, “His door is always open to the public whether it is something he can help with or not. He lets them talk. He listens.” commented Jeanne Feudo, Mayor’s Administrative Assistant. Many local non-profit organizations including the Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Orrville Area Boys and Girls Club have benefitted from Handwerk’s leadership on their Boards and through service as a dedicated, hands-on volunteer. Handwerk will be the 50th Citizen of the Year recipient that was first presented in 1969 to honor the legacy of Paul L. Powell, owner of The Orrville Courier-Crescent newspaper from 1930 – mid 1960’s. The Dix Family established the Paul L Powell Citizen of the Year award to recognize him for his community leadership, his journalistic talents and his deep affection for Orrville, his promised land. The Paul L. Powell Citizen of the Year award was formally presented to Handwerk at the 99th Annual Meeting of the Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce on March 24.

March Madness drew to a close, attention focused on the final four college basketball teams. Teams that persevered a season of challenges. Teams that worked hard, kept their eyes on the goal and not only survived, but thrived. The Orrville Area Chamber had been involved with our own version of March Madness - preparing for our 99th Annual Dinner Meeting held on March 24. Despite “the best laid plans” the Chamber staff scrambled to change course late in the fourth quarter and a full court press by everyone involved resulted in a win for the Chamber’s Centennial. I hope that those that attended the event enjoyed a festive evening filled with memorabilia, historical Chamber trivia, and good food shared among friends. The Annual Dinner Meeting followed the theme, Opening Doors Since 1915 and paid tribute to the forward thinking leaders whose contributions to the Chamber brought us to this present moment in time. For example, at the very first meeting of the Orrville Chamber the Good Roads committee reported on plans to establish a road south of the city to connect Orrville to the Lincoln Highway. Today the road is S. Main Street (State Route 57) that connects to State Route 30. Consider how different Orrville would be today without this road? We owe a debt of gratitude to the wise men who volunteered their service to the Good Roads committee, part of the newly formed Orrville Chamber of Commerce. The idea that a group of people can change a community is one that our society sometimes overlooks. A group of people who come together time and time again

to perpetuate Paul Powell’s idea that Orrville, Ohio is the Promised Land. One hundred years. A long time to be in business. Consider how society changed over the course of ten decades. The Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce was founded by 100 business and professional men on July 20, 1915. After a century of that included multiple generations of leaders making decisions every day that ultimately impacted the bottom line, we come to the Final Four. Four of the 100 Founders of the Orrville Chamber are still doing business today. It begs the question, why? What was it that set them apart? I believe that the slogan selected by the Chamber’s Community of Choice committee in 2010 states it best, “Orrville: Where Progress and Tradition Meet.” These four businesses each remember their beginnings and value the tradition of quality, service and reputation that their respective founders built their organizations. At the same time, they have been progressive and responsive to the ever changing needs of their customers, locally and globally. They re-invented themselves. It is a great honor to recognize these companies with the Founders Award for 100 years of Chamber Membership: • The Family of H.C. Auble, today Auble Funeral Home • The Family of C.S. Snyder, today Bob Snyder Auto Exchange • Orrville National Bank, today First National Bank • The Will-Burt Company, operating under the same name today

AA Look Look Back Back

The ďŹ rst train came through the area Aug. 10, 1852, in one of Wayne Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most historic moments. The new town of Orrville grew rapidly as people from neighboring towns that had no railroad ďŹ&#x201A;ocked in. Two years later the Cleveland, Akron and Columbus Railroad was built through Orrville. Running north and south, it intersected the Ohio and Pennsylvania Railroad and made Orrville a passenger and freight transfer center. Now area farmers could send their products to markets in Pittsburgh, Chicago, Cleveland or Columbus. In addition, they could earn extra money by cutting wood for the railroad. By 1860 the population of Orrville had reached 500, and on May 9, 1964, it was formally incorporated under that name. In 1882 the Wheeling and Lake Erie Railroad built a line through Orrville, positioned just south of the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago tracks. While it offered some passenger service, most of the line was concerned with freight hauling. The real boom in Orrville railroading, however, was still to come. In 1899 the Pennsylvania Railroad, which had taken over the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad in 1869, acquired the Cleveland, Akron and Columbus Railroad. As a result, Orrville became a terminal for the Pennsylvania Railroad, and in 1907 a roundhouse was constructed. That structure contained six stalls, with ďŹ ve more added a few years later. Here engines were repaired, tanks were reďŹ lled and coal â&#x20AC;&#x153;clinkersâ&#x20AC;? were removed from boilers while frieght was transferred from one line to another. The serving yard in Orrville grew to 17 tracks with a capacity of 386 cars. The railroad depot that was built in 1851 was replaced in 1868 after burning to the ground. Today that depot still exists as a museum thanks to the efforts of the Orrville Railroad Heritage Society. In its peak years, 20 passenger trains and 42 freight trains passed through Orrville daily. It is said that any time the town had a parade, the procession was invariably separated into numerous sections by passing trains. In 1923 a protracted railroad strike resulted in a consolidation of railroad activities, and the major terminal activities were moved from Orrville to Crestline. During the Great Depression,

the train and hotel business lagged. The railroad shops and many hotels and restaurants that depended on the railroad for their trade were closed by 1939. Orrvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fortunes as a railroading town were brieďŹ&#x201A;y resurrected during World War II when it was selected as a U.S. government storage site, with a huge amount of war materials collected and dispatched from an area just west of the city. After that, however, there was a great decline in railroads because of the advent of the interstate highway system and the growing trucking industry. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest population spurt came between 1900 and 1910, when the census recorded 3,066 people. These 10 years also marked the period of the greatest centralization here of railroad-related activities. In 1950 Orrville became a city, reaching a population of 5,150. Today, with a diversiďŹ ed industrial base, its population hovers around 9,000. Information contained in this article is derived from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Orrvile Ohio, Walking Through The Past,â&#x20AC;? by Robert Witmer and Darla Landers, 1999.
