Dover Township Trustees Records Transcriptions

In June, 2020, Clerk of Council Denise L. Rosenbaum completed transcribing four volumes of handwritten Dover Township Trustees Records from 1831-1880, which are part of the collection at the Western Reserve Historical Society. This greatly facilitates researching these records, especially for those unable to read cursive, since the transcriptions are much easier to read, allow for quick text or name searches, and have bookmarks at meeting dates and election results where they are scattered throughout. Copies of the original records are available in the Council office at Westlake City Hall and through the city document portal on this website.

From these volumes, Ms. Rosenbaum compiled a list of Dover Township Officials 1831-1880 which supplements and clarifies some discrepancies in the list of Government Officials of Dover ~ Westlake, Ohio 1811-2011 that was published for Westlake’s bicentennial. An addendum to the latter based on these clarifications updates that list.
