          How Chardon Rd. was paved in 1911?  A petition dated February 15, 1911 was sent to the Lake County Commissioners.  “The undersigned owners of majority of front footage of lands abutting upon that part of the Chardon Road so called extending from the County line easterly across tracts 4, 3, 2 and 6 in Willoughby Township to Woodfords Corners (River Rd.) – respectfully request that you cause the county surveyor to establish a grade along the part of the road above described, subject to your approval and cause the same to be graded, drained, curbed, paved and improved.  Section 6903-y, C of O by the laying therein of a brick block pavement of fourteen feet in width.”  Property owners pay 25% of cost prorated by front foot and the Township pays 25% payable in 10 annual installments.  Chardon Rd. was known as Inter County Road #34.
