Strongsville is an affluent city in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, United States, and a suburb of Cleveland. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 44,750. The city's nickname 'Crossroads of the Nation,' originated from the B&O Railroad intersecting with the Southwestern Electric Line that connected Cleveland and Wooster. Arguably, it is still applicable now because the Ohio Turnpike and Interstate 71 intersect in Strongsville.HistoryStrongsville officially became a township on February 25, 1818, a village in 1923, and was ultimately designated a city in 1961. Founded by settlers arriving in the newly purchased Connecticut Western Reserve, the city was named after John Stoughton Strong, the group's leader. Many of the main streets in the city are named after other principal figures and landowners from the city's history, e.g. Howe, Drake, Shurmer, Whitney.In the mid-19th century, the Pomeroy House, then called The Homestead, was a stop on the underground railroad. Alanson Pomeroy, the home owner and a prominent Strongsville resident, concealed runaway slaves on his property. From this residence in Strongsville, the runaway slaves were taken to boats on Rocky River for passage to Canada.On April 11, 1965, an F4 tornado hit Strongsville; see Palm Sunday tornado outbreak of 1965.In 1853, John D. Rockefeller's family moved to Strongsville. At the time, Rockfeller was only a child.
