Named after John Stoughton Strong, who was the leader of a group of settlers who had arrived in the area shortly after the land was purchased by the Connecticut Western Reserve, Strongsville, Ohio, is part of Cuyahoga County. A suburb of Cleveland in northeast Ohio, Strongsville is 21 miles south of the city. It is one of the largest suburbs in the area by population as it is home to an estimated 44,660 citizens. All those people live in an area of 24.63 square miles, which gives the city a dense suburban feel. The city is nicknamed the “Crossroads of the Nation” due to two major railway lines that connected in the city nearly a century ago.

Strongsville is an excellent place to raise a family. The public schools are outstanding, the crime rate is low (43% below the state average), and 38% of families have children under the age of 18, which provides peers for children of families moving in.

The education level of those peers is likely to be slightly above average as 47% of citizens have a bachelor’s degree or higher, which is 15% above the national average. Higher levels of education lead to higher levels of income, as the median household income checks in at $88,176, which is more than $25,000 above the national average.
