Sought-after then and now

Back when there was a Northfield Township, Northfield Center was its heart, which is why the town is so named. Its central location, not to mention that a part of Cuyahoga River and Brandywine Creek flow into town, made Northfield Center a highly coveted place to live in the 19th century. The community quickly grew thanks to steady land donations as well as the influx of settlers in the area.

Today, Northfield Center’s ideal location remains a highlight. Now, in addition to the navigable waterways, the town has easy access to I-271, OH-8, and the Ohio Turnpike, with the first two highways passing through some parts of Northfield Center.

Northfield Center is also served by Nordonia Hills City School District, which oversees Nordonia High School. It is currently ranked as the 6th best public high school in the Akron metro area and among the top 100 in Ohio according to U.S. News and World Report.
