Welcome to the City of Ravenna. We are very proud of our City and we invite you to explore our web site and discover a small sampling of what Ravenna has to offer.

The County seat of Portage County, Ravenna is very much "Main Street, USA". Founded in 1799 and developed throughout the 1800s, Ravenna is a wonderful blend of 1800s architecture, century homes, and modern housing and industry. Our downtown area is full of nostalgia, reminiscent of a time when Main Street was a place where people would congregate, converse, and do business.

Whether you're looking to relocate your family, or you're looking for a new location for your business, Ravenna is definitely worth considering. Please visit us and learn what our residents already know... Ravenna is a great place to live, work and play.

Ravenna Flag Pole Restoration


Restoration of Ravenna's Flag Pole continues

Restoration work on the Ravenna Flag Pole began as scheduled on July 29th, 2014 with the dis-assembly and removal of the structure.  After a successful operation to dis-assemble the structure it was loaded onto a truck and taken off site to be completely restored.  Organizers plan to have the flag pole re-erected on site in time for the Ravenna Balloon-A-Fair which is the third weekend in September.
