Preserving Peninsula's Past for the Future.

1913 Flood

March 2013 marked the centennial anniversary of the epic Flood 0f 1913. It was a natural disaster that affected 14 states and was the Superstorm Sandy of its day.

The Peninsula Foundation collaborated with the Summit County Historical Society and Akron-Summit County Public Library to create a slideshow of images taken during the flood. The presentation was first displayed at the Foundation’s Soup’s On fundraiser on March 23, 2013.
