The Heritage Corridors of Bath
AllThingsBath.com is a creation of the Heritage Corridors of Bath Committee. The web site provides Bath Township residents and visitors with a tool to easily access area services through web links.
The Heritage Corridors of Bath is a state scenic byway. The byway was designated in 1999 by the Ohio Department of Transportation and encompasses 39 miles of Bath's county roads. The designation of State Scenic Byway was awarded based on the scenic and historic attributes of our roadways.
Under the direction of the township trustees, the Heritage Corridors of Bath Committee has developed and implemented a corridor management plan. Our primary mission is to preserve the beauty of Bath's roads and the enjoyment of traveling along them. Furthermore, we cherish our Western Reserve heritage and seek ways to enhance and protect it.
Working with the Office of the Summit County Engineer, Bath Business Association, Bath Parks department, and Bath Historical Society, we have received generous assistance from individuals, garden clubs, Boy Scouts, PTA organizations, landscape architects, Rotary Club of Fairlawn, and Bath Volunteers for Service.
Past projects include the restoration of the Wye Road bridge, a barnstone retaining wall at Bath Elementary School, historic gateway signs at the hamlets of Ghent, Hammond's Corners, and Bath Center, and the planting of trees at Hammond's Corners.
Currently, we are working with the Summit County Engineer to provide safer pedestrian and bicycle access along Cleveland-Massillon Road through the creation of widened berms and the addition of crosswalks at the hamlets of Ghent, Hammond's Corners, and Bath Center.
Ultimately, we seek ways to bring Bath Township together as a community. Your input and ideas are welcome.
The Corridor Management Plan was updated this year. This document assesses the progress the committee has made over the past fifteen years, and included additional recommendations for the future of the Heritage Corridors of Bath.
