Buildings & Architecture

The New England settlers who made Tallmadge their home brought with them their tastes in architectural and building styles.  The “Western Reserve style” of architecture found in Tallmadge is a reflection of the styles that were popular in the New England towns from which these early settlers came. Many examples of the Greek Revival style, popular in New England from the late 18th through early 19th centuries, may be found in Tallmadge. Noteworthy examples are the Town Hall and the Emig home on Northeast Avenue.  In the later part of the 19th Century, building styles in Tallmadge followed what was popular throughout the country.  The residents of Tallmadge are proud of their historic buildings and continue to demonstrate a commitment to preserving many of the old homes and buildings that exist today.
