The old Summit County Home, or Infirmary, was located on W Exchange St at Storer Ave in west Akron until 1916. It was sold and the money used to build the New County Home in Tallmadge Township. There are reports that a cemetery was on the property and the bodies were moved to the new location."

Located on the east side of Darrow Rd (Rt 91) between Northmoreland Ave and South River Rd. The County Home, or Infirmary, opened in 1921, was closed in 1970, and demolished in 1980. (The Summit Nursing Home is now on this site.) There is a cemetery on site for persons who died at the County Home between 1916-1948 but there are no gravestones. Burials were published in the Chapter book: "SummitCounty Ohio Infirmary Burial & Miscellaneous Records 1916-1952" An older cemetery, located closer to Howe Rd and Weaver School, was filled and fenced in by the Summit County Agricultural Society"


Because there was a distinction between pre-1916 burials and post 1916 burials affiliated with county and city deaths in the area, there is an alternate posting site for those who died after 1916.
