History of Rimer CLC

  • Constructed in 1928
  • Annexed by the city of Akron in 1929
  • Named in honor of William F. Rimer (1870-1947)
  • William Frank Rimer moved to Kenmore in 1919. At that time, a one-room school – Allenside – was located at the corner of Foust (now Wilbeth) and Manchester roads. In 1924, seven acres of land were purchased from Herman Camp; and a portable building was placed on the site. When bonds were sold in 1927 for a new building, Rimer was principal of Kenmore High School. A.R. Ritzman, a member of the Kenmore Board of Education, said, "Why wait until a man is dead before honoring him? Mr. Rimer, although he has lived here a short while, can never be sufficiently reimbursed for the work he has done in the schools." In 1929, all of Kenmore was incorporated by the city of Akron.
  • Groundbreaking for new building on June 4, 2007; dedication on September 10, 2009; classes started in new building on August 26, 2009
