Avon Lake

Trip Planner USA  /  Ohio  /  Avon Lake
Avon Lake is a city in Lorain County, Ohio, United States. The population was 22,581 at the 2010 census.HistoryAvon Lake was first settled in the 1600s and was, along with Avon, Bay Village, and Westlake, inhabited by Wyandots, Eries, Ottawas, etc. These people settled, traded, fought, made peace, and later moved elsewhere. Avon Lake, Avon, Bay Village, and Westlake were all one territory.This place has been so far a part of three nations. Sometime prior to 1765, this territory was part of France. In 1765, the French were driven out by the English. And ten years later, in 1775, the English were forced out by the colonists. During the Revolutionary War, a direct trail from the east to the west crossed the lake shore through what now includes Avon Lake. This trail is where Lake Road is today. It was used by the British more than by the colonists.After a series of treaties, the area was purchased by the Connecticut Land Company in 1795 as the Western Reserve. Pierpont Edwards, in turn purchased Tract No. 7 in the year 1807. Cuyahoga County was formed, and the following settlers called the territory of present day Avon Lake, Avon, Bay Village, and Westlake by a Native American term which means "those who came before us", "Xeuma". French and English colonial forces did the same things here as the Natives.
