A History of Washington County, Colorado
August, 1935

"Akron was named by Mrs. Calvert, wife of a Burlington railroad official in honor of her former home in Akron, Ohio. It was platted as a townsite by the Lincoln Land Company in 1882. From 1886 to 1888, Akron had a very rapid growth. It suffered a decline in population following the panic of 1893 and the drouth [drought] of 1894."
By Stanley M. Porter
