"Greenbriar" 1806–1826edit

In 1806, the area that was to become Parma and Parma Heights was originally surveyed by Abraham Tappan, a surveyor for the Connecticut Land Company, and was known as Township 6 - Range 13 This designation gave the town its first identity in the Western Reserve Soon after, Township 6 - Range 13 was commonly referred to as "Greenbriar," supposedly for the rambling bush that grew there Benajah Fay, his wife Ruth Wilcox Fay, and their ten children, arrivals from Lewis County, New York, were the first settlers in 1816 It was then that Greenbriar, under a newly organized government seat under Brooklyn Township, began attending to its own governmental needs5

Parma Township 1826–1924edit

Self-government started to gain in popularity by the time the new Greenbriar settlement contained twenty householders However, prior to the establishment of the new township, the name Greenbriar was replaced by the name Parma This was largely due to Dr David Long who had recently returned from Italy and "impressed with the grandeur and beautywas reminded of Parma, Italy andpersuaded the early townspeople that the territory deserved a better name than Greenbriar"6

Thus, on March 7, 1826, a resolution was passed ordering the construction of the new township It stated,

"On the petition of sundry inhabitants for a new township to be organized and erected comprising No 6 in the 13th Range Ordered that said Township No 6 in the 13th Range be set off and erected into a new Township by the name of Parma, to be bounded by the original lines of said Township"5 Phillip Henninger House Built in 1842, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places

On the same day, a public notice was issued to qualified electors by the County Commissioners They met at the house of Samuel Freeman on April 3, 1826 to elect township officers according to the law It was then that the first eleven officers were elected to lead the new government5

During this time, Parma Township remained largely agricultural The first schoolhouse was a log structure built on the hill at the northern corner of what is now Parma Heights Cemetery A memorial plate on a stone marks the spot In 1827, the township was divided into road districts The Broadview Road of today was then known as Town Line Road as well as Independence Road Ridge Road was known then as Center Road as it cut through the center of town York Road was then known as York Street as arrivals from the state of New York settled there Pearl Road then had many names which included Medina Wooster Pike, Wooster Pike, the Cleveland Columbus Road, and the Brighton and Parma Plank Road7

Lyman Stearns Farm house, built 1855

A stone house, built in 1849 and known as the Henninger House, was occupied by several generations of Henningers and is still standing today The house rests on one of the higher points in Cuyahoga County, which provided visibility for the entire northeastern part of Parma Township This was also the same site where the Erie Indians, centuries before, stood to read and send fire signals as well as pray to their spirits8

By 1850, the US census listed Parma Township's population at 1,3299 However, the rising population of the township had slowed over the decades The Civil War affected Parma much as it did other towns and villages in the nation Three out of four homes sent a father, sons, or sometimes both, to fight in the war By 1910, the population of the township had increased to 1,63110

In 1911, Parma Heights, due to the temperance mood of the day, separated itself from the Parma Township after by a vote of 42 to 32 and was incorporated as a village comprising 413 square miles11

"A main reason for establishing the village of Parma Heights was to get a town marshalThere is one saloon in the territorysome pretty rough crowds Sundays have disturbed the quiet of the neighborhoodwanted it closed on Sundays To do this they wished a town marshal They couldn't have a town marshal without becoming a village, so they became one"12

The Village of Parma 1924–1930edit

By 1920, the US census showed Parma Township had a population of just 2,345, but the following decade proved to be a time of significant growth and development for Parma It was in the 1920s that Parma Township transformed from a farming community into a village On December 15, 1924, Parma was incorporated as a village

The largest and fastest growing development of that time was H A Stahl's Ridgewood Gardens development, which started in 1919, continued through the 1920s, and into the 1930s1314 A resident of Shaker Heights, Ohio's first Garden City, H A Stahl developed Ridgewood as an ambitious "model village" project patterned along the lines of and rivaling the earlier Shaker Heights project with "churches, schools, motion picture theater, community house, and other features forming a part of all well-developed residence communities"1516 Ridgewood was designed and marketed as a Garden City on 1,000 acres of land to accommodate about 40,000 residents "325 feet above Lake Erie, in the healthiest section of the South Side, free from the smoke of industries, or the congestion and noises of sections nearer the Public Square"1718

The City of Parma 1931–presentedit

On January 1, 1931, Parma became a city with a population of 13,899 Whereas the incorporation of the village of Parma was met with much optimism, the newly established city of Parma faced the uncertainty of the Great Depression which had almost entirely stopped its growth19 Money was scarce, tax income was limited, and some began to talk of annexation of both the city and school district to Cleveland Both annexation issues, however, were soundly defeated as Parma voters overwhelmingly voted against them and silenced proponents of annexation20 Not long after this, Parma was once again solvent due in large part to the newly created Gallagher Act and the determination of Parma's Auditor, Sam Nowlin21 By 1941, a building boom appeared to be underway in Parma just as the United States was about to enter World War II22

After World War II, Parma once again began to experience tremendous growth as young families began moving from Cleveland into the suburbs Between 1950 and 1960, Parma's population soared from 28,897 to 82,845 By 1956, Parma was unchallenged as the fastest growing city in the United States23 The population peaked in 1970 at 100,21624

Today, Parma's population has reached 81,601, though it remains one of the Cleveland area's top three destinations young adults aged 22 to 34 are increasingly choosing as a place to live, along with Lakewood and downtown Cleveland25 and was recently recognized by Businessweek as one of the best places to raise kids in Ohio26


Parma is located at 41°23′31″N 81°43′43″W / 4139194°N 8172861°W / 4139194; -8172861 41391852, -8172850227

Parma is southwest of Cleveland; it is bounded by Cleveland and Brooklyn on the north, Brooklyn Heights, and Seven Hills on the east, North Royalton and Broadview Heights on the south, and Brook Park, Middleburg Heights, and Parma Heights on the west

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 2007 square miles 5198 km2, of which 2002 square miles 5185 km2 is land and 005 square miles 013 km2 is water1

Two major changes and developments have recently occurred regarding two principal sites within the city:

Pop cultureedit

Moon Over Parmaedit

The Drew Carey Show's opening credits of its first season consisted of a caricature of Drew Carey — consisting of his face and a yellow tie — singing the Robert McGuire-penned "Moon Over Parma"72 The song was trimmed for the opening sequence, and the reference to Eastlake in the line "Guide her to Eastlake underneath your silvery light" was changed to a reference to Cleveland to stay in theme with the show73

Moon over Parma bring my love to me tonight Guide her to Eastlake, underneath your silvery light We met in Ashtabula, she was doing the hula I handed her my radishes and pledged my love that night Moon over Parma, won't you bring my love to me Shine on the freeway and guide her AMC Get her past those radar Mounties, bring her to Lake County, Moon over Parma, tonight Moon over Parma shine on I-271 We can't get together in the warm light of the sun I'm askin' you don't fail Get her safely through Linndale, I can't go to Parma cause my Edsel will not run Moon over Parma, where those pink flamingos stand I need her kisses and the soft touch of her hand We're goin bowlin, so don't lose her in Solon Moon over Parma, tonight I said tonight74

Parma Placeedit

Occasionally, during the 1960s and 1970s, Parma was the target of light-hearted jabs by local movie show hosts Ghoulardi, Big Chuck & Little John, and The Ghoul, due to its central European and, most specifically, Polish, make-up Ghoulardi, the horror host of late night Shock Theater at WJW-TV, Channel 8, in Cleveland, Ohio from January 13, 1963 through December 16, 1966, made a series of shorts called "Parma Place" and focused on an alleged love of white socks, pink flamingos, chrome balls, kielbasa, pierogi and the polka75
