Congratulations to Funnirosi and Sunlover!

1) How many states also have a city/town/village named Akron? 7 (also Akron's in New York, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana, Alabama, Michigan and Iowa)

2) There are 38 Springfields in the United States but what city/town/ village in Summit County has the second most common name? After Springfield the second most common name is Clinton followed by Hudson.

3) Which city/ town/ village name is unique to Summit County (not being the name of any other in the United States)? Clue: 9 of our cities/towns/villages are unique to Summit County
There are no other Barberton, Macedonia, Sagamore Hills, Twinsburg, Munroe Falls, Mogadore, Lakemore, Cuyahoga Falls, or Reminderville

ohh,,ohh I have this #3 and I don't even have to look it up b/c it is one of two in the united states... drum roll please...... Barberton....Being a Barbertonian I know a little of the background....

A little history on the name the name Barberton is used in only 2 other locations. One in Washington State (which is NOT a city but a census designated space) and the other in South Africa ...in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa, which has its origin in the 1880s gold rush in the region.

Summit County is composed of 13 cities, 9 villages and 7 townships. But are there other cities in the United States named Akron, Springfield, Twinsburg, Stow, etc.?

Answer any of the above questions correctly and receive the emoticon award!
