About Creston

Isaac Wells plotted the first map of Creston in 1870 and the area was officially named Creston in 1880. The Village of Creston was incorporated in the June 2, 1899 election with Warden Wheeler as Creston’s first Mayor.

Main Street business district was home to Ober Harness, Schlegel Meats, Cover Grocery, Goodwin Piano, Ritzi Jeweler, Schlegel & Sigler Barbers and Matteson Drug, just to name a few.

Creston was a bustling village due to the fact that it laid along the Trolley Line from Cleveland to Wooster and was home to an Erie Railroad Train Station.

With three railroads, The Wheeling & Lake Erie, B & O and NYP & O Erie Conrail, running through Creston up until the death of the Erie-Conrail in 1980, there has never been a need for traffic light control even though Creston is located on State Route 3.

Today the Village of Creston, population 2,152 as of 2021 U S Census, still has that hometown feel. Creston also enjoys the benefits of several surrounding cities including Wooster, Medina, Akron and Cleveland.

As we appreciate living in an area of gently rolling farmland in Wayne and Medina County, we thank the residents and business men and women for making Creston a great place to live, raise our families and retire.
