I feel the same way about Chardon, I left town for about 12 years and moved back 16 years ago and I hav'ent missed a high school football game since. Geauga TV has a 24/7 web cam so you can see multiple pictures of the square. There address is: http://www.geaugatv.org/cam.html....Enjoy
lotsa memories

Moved away 35 years ago and never looked back, although I loved the Maple Festival, the movie theater and I think it was "Riccards" bakery, they made the best lady fingers! Would like to see a pic of old Chardon High though, and the old Green Lantern if anyone has any.

I will get pictures of the High School, They built a new 1 million dollar football stadium. The green lantern is gone. I barely can remember where it use to be.

Rickard's bakery is gone now. Louie retired. The movie theater is closed up and turned into some kind of stage theater. Richard's Maple Products is still in business. I helped tear down the Green Lantern back several years ago. I wish the B&O Railroad was still in Chardon - wish they would put it back in - right through the middle of Burger King! I hear Landmark (now Western Reserve Farm Coop) is moving to a new location. Remember Conley's? I used to love shopping there.

Chardon and the area got filled up with yuppies and urban sprawl, which ruined it. Too much traffic, too many people and houses, and too much government. Land prices got too high for the local people to afford it. So, I moved to NW Pennsylvania to an area that is pretty much exactly like Chardon was 40 years ago. I get back there now and then.
