Downtown Kent Historical Highlights:

CITY BANK ANTIQUES: http://www.citybankantiques.com/

In August 1995, Don and Karen Barrett opened City Bank Antiques in the original, 1911 City Bank Building in Kent, Ohio. Don is an expert in the repair of American pocket watches. It was inevitable that their hobby would someday develop into a business, which Karen, a former librarian, now manages. Their store offers a variety of antique clocks as diverse as cuckoo and school house regulators to grandfather clocks and pinwheel regulators. The Barretts are proud to be official Chelsea Clock dealers, the “timekeepers of the sea” and the last great American clock company.

In September 2005, Don and Karen showcased their expanded shop which now encompasses the entire original City Bank Building and occupies more than 1850 square feet of first floor retail space. When it comes to antique pocket watches, City Bank Antiques is one of the largest retailers in the state.

The Role of the Kent Historical Society

The role of our historical society in the community has grown over the years. We now bring educational programs to schools, businesses, and civic organizations, as well as collaborate with community groups on projects such as the preservation of our historic Pioneer Cemetery, the Main Street Kent revitalization program, and historic preservation projects in the community.

We are dedicated to documenting Kent history through artifacts, records, and documents from the people of our community, our living history.

However, his macho father and village leader, Stoik the Vast, will not allow his small, clumsy, but inventive son to do so. Regardless, Hiccup ventures out into battle and downs a mysterious Night Fury dragon with his invention, but can't bring himself to kill it. Instead, Hiccup and the dragon, whom he dubs Toothless, begin a friendship that would open up both their worlds as the observant boy learns that his people have misjudged the species. But even as the two each take flight in their own way, they find that they must fight the destructive ignorance plaguing their world.
