Residential Renovations Serves the Greater Rossford Area Residents
Rossford was founded by Edward Ford of the Libbey-Owens-Ford Glass Company. In 1898, Ford purchased 173 acres along the Maumee River to build the Edward Ford Plate Glass Company.
As workers came to the factory, Ford named the resulting town “Rossford” by combining the last name of his second wife, Caroline Ross, with his last name. Shortly after the foundation of the plant, Ford built the Ford Club next to the plant, so workers could socialize. In 1998, Rossford’s centennial, the town built a memorial next to the run-down Ford Club in memory of the foundation of the town. The centennial was marked by a street fair, parade, concert, and several other accommodations.
