Discover the James A. Garfield School District

The Cornerstone of Our Outstanding Community Celebrating Excellence Every Day at the JAG Schools

Schools are the cornerstone of a community, and in this community, the James A. Garfield Schools have become the foundation and reflection of community’s expectations. We only achieve great things because of the support of our community. Our businesses are bombarded with requests to support fundraisers through donations and sponsorships, and they come through each and every time. Without the support of our community we would not be the district we have become. The support our businesses sets the stage for our achievements.

jag staff are committed to one thing... the success of our students

Parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the most statistically significant factors in academic achievement. Our parents volunteer in classrooms, support our teachers, and, most importantly, are there for their children. The support our parents give our students and our staff enable the skills and care necessary to achieve. JAG staff is a family of professionals that are committed to one thing...the success of our students. Our bus drivers, secretaries, clerks, cafeteria staff, custodians and maintenance staff work tirelessly to make every aspect of our schools excellent. Our teachers and administrators give it their all each day to make sure every student is motivated and succeeding to their fullest potential. It is this family atmosphere that is at the core of each of our achievements.

Students are why we work together. They are why we are here. Each decision we make is in the best interest of our students. In return, JAG students show the highest level of respect, sportsmanship and effort in all they do. The bottom line is that we have great kids. We are thankful to have the opportunity to serve these students. Our businesses, parents, staff and students are what make this school and community such a special place. A great deal has already been done to make our community and our schools the very best place to live, work and learn. We look forward to working together to achieve even more!

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS Upgrades Continue at JAG Stadium in 2017


thletic facility fundraising is slow but steady. If you attend a football or soccer game this fall you will enjoy some of the upgrades that took place as a result of the completion of Phase 1 and 2 of the Athletic Facilities Plan. A total of $22,218.14 was raised through the “Challenge Raffle” to complete all parts of Phase 1 and funds from the Queen of Hearts 50/50 raffle, two Night at the Races events and two Clambake fundraisers allowed us to raise an additional $106,000 for the athletic facilities.

Phase 2 of the project will be completed this summer and included the demolition of the current home bleachers and construction of new, ADA-compliant, aluminum bleachers, a new press box and an updated sound system. The next phase of our work will address restrooms and a new concession booth. The efforts of the Stadium Committee have paid great dividends in the past four years and their momentum is still growing. This is just the beginning of the work that needs to be done. Our athletic facilities are tired and need attention. It is inspiring to see so many individuals working toward the goal of improving them for future Garfield G-Men.

Discover Area Parks, Activities and Events

Explore, Hike, or Play in the Garrettsville Area

Few things are better than a warm, beautiful day spent in one of the Garrettsville Area’s many parks. While it is perfectly acceptable to visit a park and spend the day napping on a patch of green grass, there are many additional activities that outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy when visiting one of our area’s local parks and hiking trails: 1. Hit the trails. Many people visit parks to go hiking. The Garrettsville area is home to four unique hiking and biking areas, Headwaters Trail; Hiram College’s Field Station; Eagle Creek Nature Preserve and Nelson-Kennedy Ledges . 2. Take in the wildlife. Parks are home to local wildlife, and those who want to catch a glimpse of that wildlife can head to the park in the early-morning hours when crowds should be light and things relatively quiet. Take inventory of the various bird species you see, or watch for deer or scurrying chipmunks. Kids can have fun sketching the animals they see.

3. Have a picnic. Pack a lunch, a blanket, a book and some sports equipment and head to the park for a picnic with family and friends. Let the kids play while the adults sit back and enjoy some casual al fresco dining. 4. Hold an impromptu game. Invite friends and family members to join you at the park and divide into two teams before playing a couple of innings of softball, volleyball or kickball. 5. Experiment with geocaching. The Garrettsville area is full of great cache locations! Geocaching is a hobby in which individuals use latitude and longitude coordinates to pinpoint hidden caches, Inside boxes or containers they may find clues to another cache or even some small trinkets. Most importantly, enjoy your day at the park. The resources and fun are plentiful, and the cost is very low.

Discover Area History

the Cascade House

After the war of 1812 and by 1840 the township of Nelson grew to a population of 1,400. At this time Artemus Bancroft had been successfully running a tavern and Inn near the Ledges, he then later constructed the first hotel in the area on the west side of the road right in front of Cascade Falls, the hotel was named “The Grotto” The Ledges area had now become an local attraction not only for the township residents but for visitors from Cleveland and Pittsburgh. There was a large influx of people for a short time in 1870 when someone had claimed to have found Gold in the ledges but quickly came to an end once the gold had turned out to be iron sulfide or “fools gold.” A few years prior to the Civil War the Grotto hotel caught fire and burned to the ground. In 1868 the construction of a new hotel was started but this time on the east side of the road. The Cascade Hotel which was named for the once-prominent waterfall in the Ledges opened in 1869 and became one of the premier destinations for the area. The Hotel had well manicured lawns and hedges and even boasted a fountain and a scenic water pool facing the front of the hotel.

There was an Independence Ball held at the Cascade House on Friday Evening July 2, 1880; tickets were $2.25 per person. At that time A. F. Hannah was the proprietor. From a 1885 newspaper article at the time, the Cascade House was said to be “a good hotel at the center of interest and a great place of resort for pleasure seekers and curiosity hungers.” It seems that the Ledges were also a romantic site for couples; some of whom subsequently married. During the early 1900 the Cascade house was at its prime. There were dances or balls at every opportunity, especially at holidays. New Years Eve, Easter, May day, 4th of July, Harvest and Christmas holidays were always observed with balls. Besides these, there were countless picnics, family reunions, outings and other social activities at the Ledges. It was a fashionable and pleasant place to vacation for urban dwellers from places like Cleveland and Pittsburgh. Although there was no public transportation to Nelson Ledges and the hotel, it was relatively easy to reach; even during the early days

The hotel, originally two stories, had a public sitting room, a small store for picnic necessities, a public dining room, a kitchen, an office and the living quarters for the manager on the first floor. On the second floor there were two rows of guest rooms for summer use. A short time later, a third floor was added to serve as a dance hall. It was of unique construction. The original structure probably lacked the strength to support the dance floor so the third floor was built to be self supporting. The dance floor itself was also built to have a spring to it which proved a novelty for the dancers of that day. DISCOVER GARRETTSVILLE


before the advent of the automobile. The Erie Railroad main line ran through nearby Garrettsville and stopped there to pick up and discharge passengers. There were several trains each day so that the prospective hotel guest would have no difficulty in making a comfortable and pleasant trip to Garrettsville. A hired buggy, hack or other horse drawn vehicle would transport the guests to the hotel which was but a few miles north east of Garrettsville. For festive occasions the music would be supplied by some local players or, if possible, musicians from Cleveland. The dancing would start early in the evening and continue until midnight when an intermission was called and everyone went down to the dining room on the first floor for dinner. The typical menu for dinner was a choice of roast beef, roast pork or chicken pie. After dinner one would hurry back to the ball room for more dancing which continued until three or four or even until daybreak. Prior to the coming of the automobile, horse drawn vehicles were used exclusively to bring guests to the hotel from the

At the turn of the century the Cleveland and Eastern Traction Company established interurban service from Cleveland to Garrettsville via Chagrin Falls. The branch to Garrettsville left the main line at Steels Corners and passed through Hiram before reaching Garrettsville. The rails dipped into the valley and Garrettsville to terminate in the town. Technical difficulties prevented the cars from negotiating the hill upon their return trip, therefore the terminal was moved to the top of the hill some distance from the center of Garrettsville. For this reason, it was never really competitive with the Erie for the passenger traffic into Garrettsville; especially for passengers going to the Cascade House or Nelson Ledges. The more frequent daily runs of the interurban may have caused some people to chose it rather than the Erie. In 1908 much of the Nelson Ledges land was purchased by the Silicon Sand company. Blasting by the sand company eliminated Cascade Falls. Due to the blasting, the water source that fed the falls disappeared into the earth and part of the beauty of Nelson Ledges disappeared forever. During a long heavy downpour you can, at times again see what the falls once were. The Cascade House continued to serve the public until the mid 1950’s when declining interest and use made it unprofitable. Due to the condition of the roof and the state of the structure it was found that much more money was needed to complete the restoration than anticipated. In 1980 the old Cascade House was demolished by the State, leaving a paved parking lot where it once had stood.

The Poet

& the Confectioner

World-recognized poet, Hart Crane, son of Clarence Arthur Crane and Grace Edna Hart Crane, was born in Garrettsville in July of 1899. Both sides of his family had roots and history in the Western Reserve. The Harts were prominent in nearby Warren. His uncle, Cassius Crane was editor of the Garrettsville Journal, once the area’s leading publication and the precursur to the Villager, printed in the building that now houses the police station. Grandparents, Arthur and Ella Crane, lived with aunts Alice and Elizabeth Crane, next door in the home that is now the rectory for St. Ambrose Church. Great uncles, Elton, Cassius and Frederic just steps away and operated what was said to be the largest general store in the Western Reserve. Grandfather Arthur Crane



was the owner of a maple syrup cannery which was the foundation of Garrettsville’s fame as the “Maple Syrup Capital of the World”. A local farmer won a medal for locally-produced sweetness at the Columbian Exposition of 1893. Garrettsville was a thriving commercial center for the northern part of Portage County, southern Geauga County and western Trumbull County. Crane Bros. Syrup Co. expanded into making candy, as maple production was largely limited to spring, and in 1909 Clarence Crane took his family to Cleveland to establish the Crane Candy Company to manufacture high-quality chocolates and candy. The company sought a “summer candy” that could withstand heat—

there was no refrigeration—better than chocolate. Inspired by the shape of life preservers used for rescuing people who had fallen from boats, the company came up with “the candy with the hole”, which used ingenious packaging and clever marketing to soon become popular across the country. Meanwhile, Hart Crane was writing poetry which oftentimes recalled some features of the little village he once called home. Not far from his birthplace on Freedom St. stood the Opera House, community center for the arts, public meetings, police and fire departments, political and educational events, now erased by time but remembered by the present Clock Tower. Arching over Silver Creek was the stone bridge next to founder John Garrett’s grist mill, the dam, millrace and waterwheel that first brought settlers and local residents to the town. Perhaps he dreamed of the destinations toward which the waters flowed—the Mahoning, the Ohio, the Mississippi, the Gulf of Mexico. Perhaps his best-known poem, “The Bridge”, was sometimes an echo of the days he had enjoyed here: ” I left the village for dogwood, by the canoe Tugging below the mill-race, I could see Your hair’s keen crescent running and the blue First moth of the evening take wing stealthily ....”

The James A. Garfield Historical Society is founded upon a love for our roots, a realization of what it means to have sprung from a New England-based community, a desire to remember events and individuals who have shaped what we are today and respect for the preservation of what has shaped us all. To that end, it wishes to acquire, conserve and preserve materials relevant to the study of the roots of our community and to promote an understanding of the accomplishments which have led to our present society. To learn more about the history of the Garrettsville area make a visit to the J. A. Garfield Historical Society located in Garrettsville’s historic Main Street business district. The museum houses countless antiques, artifacts, and photographs from around the area.

Beautifying the

Village of Garrettsville

The Silver Creek Garden Club has developed deep roots in the Garrettsville area during its more than 80 year history. As the Depression years were winding down, a group of men and women “interested in growing things” formed the club to share garden knowledge. Public service was important from the start. Each spring they planted petunias at the village railroad station and tended planters hanging from railings on the downtown bridge. The emphasis on community service continues today, with members overseeing planters downtown and caring for a large flower bed at the public library. Members gather monthly for presentations from garden experts or to tour gardens in the village.

The Silver Creek Garden Club relies on donations from businesses, and area residents, to raise the monies for their service project. The group also digs and sells perennials and other plants from their gardens during the Chamber of Commerce annual community yard sale. Proceeds help pay for the planters and garden maintenance. Meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of each month. Anyone interested in learning more should contact president Marie Elium, 330-527-5136 or vice-president Barb Bejger, 330-527-2802.

Quilting with the

Village Piecemakers

The Village Piecemakers Quilt Club has been in existence for approximately 30 years, beginning in Mantua as The Buckeye Quilters. As more space was needed for the growing club, it moved to the Hiram Christian Church and then on to it’s current location at the Village Hall in Garrettsville. The Village Piecemakers is a lively group of women ranging from young to old, beginners to experts. The group’s purpose is to promote interest in the art of quilting, to exchange ideas and to encourage growth in our members’ abilities and knowledge. Pictured above is the Raffle Quilt for 2016. There are many activities that members can participate in each month such as fabric challenges, fabric exchanges, lottery blocks and charity quilts. However, our main project is to create a quilt every two years to be raffled during the Garrettsville Historical Society’s Christmas Walk.



The Village Piecemakers meet every 3rd Tuesday at 7:00 pm at the Village Hall in Garrettsville. Currently there is a waiting list to join, however anyone wishing to learn more abour the organization can contact Barb Bejger at 330-527-2802.

Great Atmosphere

& Fantastic Coffee

CELLAR DOOR COFFEE CO. BREATHES NEW LIFE INTO HISTORIC SPACE Serving specialty brews from coffee beans roasted by Youngstown’s Stone Fruit Roaster, Harney & Sons Fine Teas, and delectable pastries supplied daily by a local baker, The Cellar Door Coffee Company now occupies the historic feed mill at the apex of Garrettsville’s Main Street (formerly Rosie Jean’s Winery). Cellar Door offers comfortable spaces to gather with friends, enjoy free wi-fi, or host a private business meeting or celebratory event. Customers are encouraged to soak in the classic ambience of the main floor, then spread out and find a quiet nook on the cellar level, or enjoy some fresh air by Eagle Creek on the outdoor patio. Even the kids have their own tucked-away space with a couch and a Lego bar on the lower level. “We had always thought we’d do this as a retirement plan, but my dream just wouldn’t wait!” explains Whitney, whose career background includes marketing and event planning. She and Derek — a mechanical engineer at NASA — have had their eye on this historic building ever since the dilapidated structure was restored by builder Mike Mascheck. As a child whose parents hail from Garrettsville and Hiram, and whose grandmother served as a school principal in Windham, Whitney used to pass by the old mill and be dismayed by the deserted eyesore. Now, to be a part of its revival, Whitney says that leasing the 164-year-old structure is an honor. “We love the history of this building and we want it to be a warm, inviting gathering place for members of the community to meet up with old friends, discover new friends, and consider it as their cozy second home.” 32


Paying tribute to the rich history of Garrettsville and surrounding communities, the building itself is a monument to 1850s-era construction materials and methods, including giant rough-hewn structural beams and immense stone blocks comprising the exposed cellar walls. The Podboys reflect that rustic aesthetic in the shop’s furnishings and decor: The coffee bar was built from reclaimed wood, and its countertop features sheet metal and copper. Derek has built the tables from heavy planks of distressed wood mounted on legs fashioned from pipe fittings. Vintage wooden chairs are assembled around each table. The main floor picture window offers vaulted views of Main Street while its interior walls are adorned with old maps, photos and news clipping found in the basement of Whitney’s grandmother, Margaret (Howdy) Miller. Inspiration for the shop name came from Neil Young’s 1974 Live at the Cellar Door album, Derek says. The Podboys grew up in Burton and now reside in Auburn. High school sweethearts, the couple has enduring ties to this region, its history and its sense of community. This is why they are dedicated to sourcing their coffees and baked goods locally, and dedicating their coffee shop to the good of the neighborhood. The Cellar Door is open 7am-8pm Mondays through Saturdays (closed Tuesdays), and 10am-4pm Sundays. Keep up with the latest developments via their Facebook page: Cellar Door Coffee Co., the company website, or by calling the shop at (330) 357-5013.
