Founded in 1833, at the same time as the renowned Oberlin College, also located in Oberlin, this quaint town enjoys a rich and diverse history. Once a haven for abolitionists and free thinkers, Oberlin was a stop on the Underground Railroad for fugitive slaves on their long journey to freedom. Oberlin is not only a destination, but home for many who love its rare combination of restaurants, shopping, architecture, cultural attractions, collegiate enthusiasm, and great neighborhoods.
