Walk into Grand Pacific Junction™ and step back more than 100 years. The mystique and intrigue of the various architectural designs in historic Olmsted Falls, produce an ambiance of unbelievable nature. It is one of the most authentic and original revitalized downtown historical districts in Ohio. Architectural make-up of this area is late 1880s flat storefront construction, Greek revival with post beam construction, late Victorian and Mid-1920′s commercial storefront.
Surrounding you are some of the same buildings David Stearns, who was the second settler in 1816, wrote about in 1879 when he described the town as having “four general stores, two drug stores, one tailor shop, one broom factory, one felloe (wagon wheel) shop, and one lumber yard.” The population that year was 700, with three churches and the Union Schoolhouse.
One of the most unique wedding chapels in Ohio, the Grand Pacific Wedding Chapel was originally erected in 1851 as a Methodist Episcopal church. Acquired in 1956 by the Masonic Lodge and gracefully enjoyed until the spring of 2001. Purchased by Clint Williams who has restored it to its original Victorian grace.
