Mutton Hill used to have 1,300 sheep grazing 300 acres of land. They moved to the east coast in the mid-1800s. Perkins Stone Mansion in Downtown Akron now houses the Summit County Historical Society. Thanks to the organization and The Spicy Lamb Farm of Peninsula, sheep are back on the land.

Do you love Akron? I want to know why. Tell me in a tweet or answer on the Summit Peeks Facebook page. I’ll compile the answers and post a roundup next weekend.
