Located in northwestern ohio, sylvania is a suburb of toledo, ohio and for many years has been known as the fastest growing suburb in lucas county. a once rural farm community, between both the city and township they have grown from a combined 2,220 residents in 1910, to 48,487 in 2010. over a short period of time the land has transformed into beautiful subdivisions of grand houses, so that now their subdivision names are all that remain to remind them of their once dense forests and sprawling farmlands. no longer can sylvania be called the bedroom community of toledo, because over the last 50 years they have done a lot more than sleep.
