Solon, Ohio

Solon is a city in Cuyahoga County, Ohio. A suburb of Cleveland, Solon has a population of approximately 23,300. Solon adopted a zoning plan fairly early in its history, creating separate industrial and residential districts, along with municipal parks and recreational spaces. Railroad and major highway access help support a stable manufacturing base, which includes employers such as Nestle Prepared Foods, King Nut Company and Swagelok.

Solon was established in 1820. Agriculture was the main industry, with corn, wheat and dairy among the major crops. Solon incorporated as a village in 1917. The Bready Cultimotor Company built Solon's first manufacturing facility in 1929, producing garden tractors. After World War II, new industries began to arrive in Solon, many relocating from nearby Cleveland, and the town reincorporated as a city in 1961.
