Many of the County Links
on the left will keep you specifically in or near Geauga County and Chardon, Ohio. It is named for a Native American word meaning 'raccoon' in the Onondaga or Seneca language, originally the name of the Grand River.
Chardon is known for its maple syrup industry and this season is celebrated in March when the sap is at its prime. The Maple Festival takes place in Chardon Square the last weekend of April.
Geauga County is the closest Amish Community to Cleveland, Ohio. With an Amish population of just over 14,000 it is the 4th largest Amish settlement in the world. There is no better place to eat, sleep, shop, and play than in this area's warm and inviting atmosphere. Take pleasure in a day or a long weekend to unwind and relax.
