The city was founded in 1825, and the population more than doubled within just a century. Akron became one of the country's fastest growing cities thanks to its burgeoning industries like stoneware, sanitary sewer, fishing tackle, farming equipment, toys and rubber. Because of its large rubber industry, Akron is has been nicknamed Rubber City and Rubber Capital of the World. Today, the city is home to large employers including First Merit Bank and First Energy, and Newsweek listed it as one of the top Information Age high-tech havens. Akron has also won awards by the National Civic League and National Arbor Day Foundation; named one of the world's most livable cities. The City of Akron comprises 21 official neighborhoods, all of which feature their own distinct look and architecture. Maple Valley covers the west end of Copley Road, and features a number of commercial establishments. Spicer Town is a neighborhood in the University Park Area and is home to lots of students that belong to the University of Akron. Hence, both retail and residential construction in the neighborhood caters mainly to the younger population. Other areas include West Hill, which features stately old homes; especially around the Oakdale Historic District.
