Akron’s Mutton Hill has Sheep Once Again

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.
