A Place to Put Down Roots

For a small town just shy of 3,000 residents, Solon is growing fast! The Solon Community School District’s elementary, middle, and high schools are expanding, and the city boasts a state-of-the-art Center for the Arts, which houses Solon High School performances and community events.

With its substantial growth, Solon claims several one-of-a-kind shops and eateries. Big Grove Brewery serves craft tap beer and practices the farm-to-table concept, changing its menu with the seasons to accommodate fresh ingredients. Salt Fork Kitchen has a similar philosophy, working with local farmers to serve made-from-scratch, in-season food.
