This is the old Vaughan House
I used to walk across that spillway when there was no water going over- during dry spells when they had the penstock open.
If you went to Grant School in Cuyahoga Falls or Jennings/Saturn School in Akron, this was one of your favorite playgrounds!
The Ellis property (adjoining this old highway) was an endowment to the National Park Service with the provision that it would become part of Cleveland National Forest for all to enjoy... Where is the park signage and access for handicapped people? When I reported the old hand-carved chevron-shaped CNF sign that used to be near here had fallen down (?), the rangers ignored me and left the sign lay there until it was stolen! I doubt very much that this is what the Ellis family had in mind when they so generously donated this beautiful property!
