Sheffield Village is situated along the Black River in Lorain County, Ohio. In 1815, Captain Jabez Burrell and Captain John Day of Sheffield, Massachusetts, purchased a tract of land in the Connecticut Western Reserve, naming the resulting township after their former home. In 1920, township residents east of the Black River voted to withdraw from the township and incorporate Sheffield Lake. In 1933, farmers in the south voted to separate from Sheffield Lake, forming the village of Sheffield.
