The ‘Crossroads of Northeast Ohio’ is also known as Macedonia. This small town of about 12,000 residents gives plenty of space to its residences, whether modest one-story ranch style houses or spacious, multi-level family homes. There is a varied mix between classically historical and more modern homes, with icons like the Longwood Manor, a Tudor revival style house, as well as newly built homes with high-tech amenities.
Covering an area of around just 10 square miles, Macedonia has the look and feel of a small, Midwestern town, with the charm of a lovely historical district as well as convenient access to major shopping and commerce. Macedonia falls within the outer bounds of the Akron Metropolitan Area, giving its residents easy access to everything that burgeoning Akron has to offer, including the Akron-Canton Regional Airport. The Nordonia Hills City School District serves Macedonia, including children from the district at middle and high school levels.
Many popular lodging facilities and restaurant lie within the town, and as it’s only a twenty five minute drive to both Cleveland and Akron, the world is at your fingertips. A close drive to both the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and the Football Hall of Fame, Macedonia provides small town tranquility without being cut off from the diversions and entertainment of the larger cities of northeastern Ohio. Founded in 1905, Macedonia falls within Summit County. This small Midwestern jewel is said to be named because of a joke of some students at the Western Reserve College. When the students were asked to travel north a few miles for an event in a small hamlet, as Macedonia was called at the time, they joked that they were ‘headed to Macedonia’. And so the name stuck. Now, Macedonia is known for its close community, potential for future growth opportunities, and of course, the abundance of variety in the housing choices.
