June 7, 1807 from parts of Trumbull County
The county seat is Ravenna
Portage comes from an old Native American path called "Portage Trail", which ran between the Cuyahoga
and Tuscarawas rivers, where travelers portaged their canoes.
The first European settler in what is now Portage County was Abraham Honey in 1798 in the area now known as Mantua
Township, followed by Asa Hall in what is now Atwater Township in April 1799. In June 1799, Benjamin Tappan, Jr.
arrived and founded Ravenna, David Daniels came to what is now Palmyra Township, and Ebenezer Sheldon settled in
what is now Aurora. (source:
