The city of Tallmadge was founded in 1807 by the Reverend David Bacon as part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. It was Bacon who laid out our picturesque Circle based on the New England design of the day. Today, the Circle is still the central focal point of our community and it is estimated that 55,000 cars travel around it every day. Our community of 18,000 people blends an early American heritage with a present day Midwestern hospitality!
