Facts About Mentor, OH

Mentor, city, Lake county, northeastern Ohio, U.S. It lies on Lake Erie, about 20 miles (32 km) northeast of Cleveland. Mentor township, organized in 1815, was named either for Hiram Mentor, an early settler, or for the Mentor of Homeric verse (the tutor of Telemachus, Odysseus’s son). Mentor Village was separately incorporated in 1855. After World War II the area experienced rapid population and industrial growth, and in 1963 the township and village were consolidated. James A. Garfield, later U.S. president, bought a farm there in 1876, and his home, Lawnfield, has been preserved as a national historic site and memorial museum depicting the history of the Western Reserve. There are many garden nurseries in the vicinity; Headlands State Park and Headlands Dunes and Mentor Marsh state nature preserves are adjacent to the city. Inc. city, 1963. Pop. (2000) 50,278; Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor Metro Area, 2,148,153; (2010) 47,159; Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor Metro Area, 2,077,240.

In 1797, Charles Parker, a surveyor with the Connecticut Land Company, built a cabin on the marsh paving the way for other pioneers to establish this new land called the Western Reserve Territory. By 1811, Charles moved on to settle Milan, Ohio, but his younger brother, Clark would spend the rest of his life here. He married Margaret Jordan (whose family settled Concord Township) and they raised 13 children. Part of their property on Mentor Avenue was donated to the newly-established Mentor Methodist Church. Many of Mentor’s first settlers are buried at Mentor Cemetery.

The name Mentor originated in Greek literature; Mentor was the tutor of Telemachus, the son of Odysseus. Other place names in the Western Reserve, including Solon, Euclid and Macedonia, were also inspired by the early Americans’ fascination with the ancient world.

According to advertisements and rumors that spread from farmhouse to village, this new land in the West was not a grim wilderness, but Eden itself, an earthly Paradise where the ground was level and fertile and the climate mild.

The pioneers traveled mostly by horse and covered wagon loaded with every possession — a bed, a chest, some quilts and featherbeds, a trunk full of clothing, and, of course, the family Bible. They also brought with them a sense of community that resulted in the quick establishment of churches, schools and libraries. Over the years, this young farming community grew. Foot trails became roads. Farmlands gave way to nurseries. Ultimately, Mentor became the major commercial center that we know today.
