Northeast Ohio Regional Page
Part of the Ohio Regional Road Pages

Both of the co-creators of this page have lived in Northeast Ohio at one time or another. Sandor Gulyas grew up north of Burton and moved away in 1982 to "suburban" Columbus, Ohio. Marc Fannin moved to the area in 1987 from Southwest Michigan and has lived both in a location just east of Mentor and in Kent. This page was originally created by Marc Fannin (see bottom for the old introduction), and has since been expanded through the work and submissions of others.
