History

In 1815, sixteen pioneers settled the area along the eastern border of present-day Cuyahoga County. In 1820, Orange Township was established, which included the present municipalities of Pepper Pike, Hunting Valley, Moreland Hills, Orange Village and Woodmere. Orange Township was the birthplace of President James A. Garfield in 1831. By the late 1880s, dairy farming and cheese production became the primary industry of the township. In 1924, residents of the northwestern quadrant of Orange Township voted to separate, and the village of Pepper Pike was incorporated. The name "Pepper Pike" was selected after the Pepper family, who lived and worked along the primary transportation corridor (i.e., turnpike). Incorporated as a city in 1970, Pepper Pike operates under the mayor-council form of government. The population was 5,933 in 1970, increasing to 6,177 in 1980, with the current population remaining below 6,200.
