I was recently in Akron, Ohio for a client meeting and was so thankful I stumbled into this rural America historical gem. During the late nineteenth century, Ohio emerged as the leader of rubber production in the United States. Numerous rubber companies operated in or near Akron, Ohio, making this city the “Rubber Capital of the World.” Among the large-scale rubber producers to have factories in the area were the B.F. Goodrich Company, the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, and the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company. The advent of the bicycle and then automobiles allowed these companies to earn tremendous wealth. Enjoy the video!
