The area now known as Stow was originally inhabited by a tribe of Seneca Native Americans until European settlers arrived in the early 1800s. Stow was named for Joshua Stow, the town’s original proprietor who is quoted as saying it was “one of the prettiest and most romantic spots in the Western Reserve.” The land was eventually known as Stow Township and was purchased by Joshua Stow for $14,154. Stow Township was formally organized and became part of Portage County in the year 1808, and held its first election in 1811. It was part of Portage County until it was included in Summit County in 1840.
