In honor of Heritage Day, the tour will feature the under-appreciated historical significance of the Circle and Township along Cleveland Massillon Road and Copley Road, and then introduce you to many of the small businesses of Copley.

The tour will be led by Copley Residents, members of the Copley Circle Advisory Board supported by the rich resources of the Copley Historical Society.
