Glendale Ohio Black Squirrel History
Glendale traces its history of its legendary black squirrel population to the 1940s, when Thomas Carruthers, a Glendale businessman and Procter & Gamble heir, brought two pairs of black squirrels back from his summer home in Harbor Springs, Michigan.
Within a few short weeks, someone shot one of the squirrels and displayed it in a local tavern. However, the remaining trio continued to populate and now Glendale is known for one of the largest population of black squirrels in the United States.
The village is proud of its black squirrel population and has given the squirrel status as "Official Village Greeter." They also celebrated their 150th anniversary with 4-foot fiberglass squirrels designed and painted by local artists placed throughout the village.
