Akron, the city of invention, is home to the National Inventor's Hall of Fame and Inventure Place. Akron was founded in 1825 as canal town on the Ohio & Erie Canals. Railroads soon toke over the canal systems, and the rubber industry began to grow. 50% of the US population lives within 500 miles of Akron. Akron is also considered major trucking hub. Some claims to fame are Rubber Capital of the world, Labron James, Ohio Ballet, National Soap Box Derby. Ice cream cones, hamburgers, and caramel corn snacks invested here by Charles E Menches. Quaker Oats started here. The PGA Bridgestone Invitational played here each year at Firestone Country Club.
