Text, side A
Inventor, industrialist, and philanthropist, Harvey Samuel Firestone (1868-1938) was born on a nearby farm in 1868 and attended school in Columbiana. He founded the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company in 1900 and soon after developed a method for mass-producing tires for the infant automobile industry. Continuing innovation and steady contracts with large automakers led to the company's lasting success. Firestone Park is his lasting legacy to Columbiana. The Firestone family's monument is located in nearby Columbiana Cemetery.
