The plateau at the top of North Hill developed rapidly after it was connected with Downtown in 1922 by a viaduct over the Cascade Valley of the Little Cuyahoga River. It is bordered on the west by Cascade Valley Metropark, on the east by Gorge Metropark, and on the north by Cuyahoga Falls. n North Hill is primarily a single-family residential community. n Retail/commercial corridors along North Main Street, East Cuyahoga Falls Avenue, Tallmadge Avenue, and Home Avenue serve North Hill.

In 1927, the North Akron Board of Trade’s directors proposed naming the busy intersection of North Main Street and East Cuyahoga Falls Avenue as “Temple Square.” Akron Mayor D.C. Rybolt found the name to be “appropriate and euphonious,” and North Hill residents have been calling it that ever since. Temple Square’s name might baffle some younger folks, but it made perfect sense when it first was applied 90 years ago. It was a tribute to the “most pretentious structure” on North Hill — back when pretentious was considered a good thing.
