Life in Parma

Parma, Ohio is a city in Cuyahoga County. It is a suburb of Cleveland. It currently has a population of about 84,000 people.

Parma is located southwest of Cleveland, and directly borders the city. Parma, Ohio was founded in 1826, by settlers from New York. Parma, Ohio was named after a city in New York of the same name, and likely came from the popular fascination with classical Italian culture that existed at the time. Through the rest of the 19th century, Parma remained rural, with its economy largely based on agriculture. Parma saw an explosion in population and economic growth after World War Two, when a major exodus from cities into newly-created residential suburbs was well underway. This was fueled mostly by increased consumer purchasing power created by the economic boom, as well as apprehension about living in major cities during the Cold War.

Modernly, Parma maintains its suburban character, and is largely a bedroom community for Cleveland.
