Product Description:
The Village of Sheffield was founded on the Lake Erie plain and a sandy ridge of glacial Lake Warren. Black River and French Creek course through rich farmlands, once home to Archaic and Woodland Indians. Originally surveyed as Township 7 of Range 17 in the Connecticut Western Reserve, hearty pioneers arrived here in 1815 from the Berkshire Mountains of New England, naming their settlement Sheffield after their Massachusetts town. In the mid-1800s, another wave of immigrants arrived from Bavaria, adding cultural richness to the community. In 1894, industrialist Tom Johnson constructed giant steel mills on the west side of the river, and Sheffield Village eventually broke away, choosing to retain its agrarian identity. Today Sheffield Village is in transition to a modern residential/commercial community but keeps much of its natural character by virtue of parklands along stream valleys. Fortunately, fine examples of homestead architecture have been preserved throughout the village.

Product Description:

While Sheffield boasts an extraordinary variety of industrial buildings connected to the metal trades, there is another side to England’s least known big city. Set amidst magnificent scenery, it has an array of handsome Victorian buildings, innovative building projects from the 1950s and 1960s, and exciting newer buildings such as the Millennium Galleries, Winter Garden, and Persistence Works.

This is the first comprehensive architectural guide to Sheffield. It describes the buildings of the city center, those of the inner suburbs, and some outstanding buildings farther out. Such major buildings as the town hall, the two cathedrals, and the Winter Garden receive more detailed treatment, as do the two Universities. Illustrated in color throughout, Sheffield displays in detail this Yorkshire city’s enticing contrasts of industrial heritage and natural beauty.
