Panoramic view of the city of Ravenna, county seat of Portage Co., Ohio 1882.

Reproduction panorama map of Ravenna, Ohio, looking southeast, drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Ruger & Stoner in 1882. Named after the Italian city of Ravenna, the Ohio town was founded in 1808 on land the government had reserved for New Englanders whose homes and towns were destroyed during the American Revolution. The town quickly became the county seat for Ohio's newly formed Portage County. A court house and log jail were built in 1810. A new brick courthouse was erected in 1830 and expanded in 1881. W. D. Clark formed his wagon and buggy works here in 1831. A glassmaking facility was brought in in 1848. Later the Clark Wagon & Buggy Co. would be known as the Riddle Coach and Hearse Co.. H. Warner Riddle arrived in town in 1860 and became one of Ravenna's most famous businessmen and philanthropists. Several buildings downtown were either built by him or named for him. Ravenna watched the Quaker Oats Co. begin in 1877. Telephones were first introduced to Ravenna citizens in the year of this map.

The map features clearly labeled street names showing scenes of carriage, pedestrian and railroad traffic.
