Barberton Memories - 1910s

The second decade of the new century was chaotic around the country, as well as in Barberton. The city built schools and opened a new hospital. There was a large fire on 2nd Street which endangered the whole town. World War I sent young Barberton men and women to Europe. While they were there, they had to not only dodge bullets, but avoid the Spanish Flu epidemic. Those who survived brought the contagious illness home. There was even an inventor trying to fly a home-made airplane in Barberton. The 1910s are a fun decade to talk about.
