history about ravenna

People started to move into what is now known as "Ravenna" in the early 1850's. The reason on how Ravenna got its name was because, there was a large ravine that had split the town, so then the people named it that. Another cool fact is, is that in 1885, the city had a population of 150 and a functional post office. How amazing is that?!
