About Me

My photo
I'm 70 years old and have lived in the Akron-Tallmadge, Ohio area all of my life. For 10-years (1957-1967) I lived most summers at our home in Cook Forest, Pa. I'm a U.S. Army veteran (1971-1973). I collect many things such as: antique cars, antique firearms, movies, movie props, old newspapers and posters, Wyatt Earp items, Civil War items, John Wayne items, items from the old west including Native American items, just about anything historical. I've been married for 47-years. My wife and I have a son and a daughter and three granddaughters and two great grandchildren.

Mountain Line Car

The Mountain Line was a rail line built by the Akron & Cuyahoga Rapid Transit Co. in the late 1800s. This line originally ran from Front Street in Cuyahoga Falls across the Glen Bridge to Bettes Corners. It continued by private right of way to Furnace Street in Akron on to Main Street. In 1894 the Cuyahoga Rapid Transit Co. continued the line on to Barberton. In 1895 they took the line farther and ran it east to Kent. Also in 1895 the company created a shorter line that ran along side of Silver Lake and into Randolph.
