Strongsville Real Estate
Strongsville is located about 20 miles southwest of downtown Cleveland via I-71. It became a village in 1923 and was designated a city in 1961. In the mid-19th century, the Pomeroy House, then called The Homestead, was a stop on the underground railroad. Alanson Pomeroy, the home owner and a prominent Strongsville resident, concealed runaway slaves on his property. From this residence in Strongsville, the runaway slaves were taken to boats on Rocky River for passage to Canada. Today, you can visit Pomeroy House and be served some high-end fare in several posh dining rooms or a more casual pub.
