For home-buyers seeking a quiet, rural, family-oriented community, Bath Township is an excellent choice. Despite its size, Bath clocks in at just under 10,000 residents. This small, tight-knit community is comprised of over 80% families, which contribute to the success of the Silver Medal winning Revere School District.
Bath is a community that draws heavily on its rural roots to influence its aesthetic. Bath boasts beautiful sights such as century homes, covered bridges, large barns, and old textile mills and waterwheels. Aside from its man-made gems, Bath Township contains nearly 40 miles of country roads that carry the distinction of “Scenic Byways”. Driving through Bath Township is akin to taking a drive through the pastoral days of long ago.
The community supports this authentic antiquity as well. Family-owned farms and apiaries pepper Bath Township with fresh, local produce. Local favorites like the Bake Shop, the Woolen Mill, the Octagon Bee House, and Yellow Creek, make perfect stops for a rural sightseeing adventure. Bath also supports its history by maintaining historic museums, such as its preserved old town hall, and the Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, a 65-room historic summer home. The University of Akron uses Bath Township property for community education, and Bath even holds a summer camp for children interested in farming!
Despite its rural nature, Bath is conveniently located just north of Copley and south of Richfield. Two entrances to I-77 help Bath citizens with an easy morning and evening commute: because of its location, accessing Akron, Cleveland, and Cleveland’s East Suburbs is a breeze for the working Bath resident. First-time home buyers who value greenery, heritage, and peace and quiet, will find Bath Township to be delightful.
