The Village of Glenwillow was developed and has survived over
the last century as a rural enclave whose character has been
shaped by the Austin Powder Company. Glenwillow began as a
company town of the Austin Powder Company, which relocated
its explosives factory from Cleveland in 1892. The Falls Junction
Depot was originally built in 1883 and located approximately
¼ mile to the north at the junction of the existing Wheeling
and Lake Erie track and a rail line that connected to Chagrin
Falls. The Depot was moved to its present location when Austin
Powder Company relocated to Glenwillow. Passenger trains on
the Wheeling and Lake Erie Railway provided Glenwillow residents
access to the larger cities of Cleveland. Kent, and Akron, and
provided a route for Austin Powder to ship its explosives to
mines in southeast Ohio. The Depot, which operated until 1974,
is now an important component to the revitalization of the
Glenwillow Town Center.
