Rossford was founded by Edward Ford of the Libbey-Owens-Ford Glass Company.  In 1898, Ford purchased 173 acres along the Maumee River to build the Edward Ford Plate Glass Company.  As workers came to the factory, Ford named the resulting town “Rossford” by combining the last name of his second wife, Caroline Ross, with his.  In 1998, Rossford’s centennial, the town built a memorial next to the old Ford Club in memory of the foundation of the town.

You will find Rossford conveniently located for your travels at the Crossroads of I-75 and the Ohio Turnpike, just south of Toledo, Ohio.  Whether you are taking a family trip or planning a tour,
