B.F. Goodrich helped bring Akron to fame as the Rubber Capital of the World by starting the city’s first rubber plant. Now, people in Northeast Ohio are getting the opportunity to explore the hundred-year-old tunnels underneath it, and maybe even a chance to meet a ghost.

About 200 people gathered for a memorial in Alliance over the weekend for former Congressman Ralph Regula, who died last month at age 92.

The ceremony took place at Riggs Memorial Plaza at the University of Mount Union on Saturday as 18-term Congressman Ralph Regula was remembered for everything from helping to establish the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to driving with a lead foot.
