Montrose is an area on the border between the Bath and Copley Townships of Summit County, Ohio, United States. It is an area of restaurants, stores, and businesses located along a stretch of State Route 18 near Interstate 77. The community is served by the Akron (44333) post office. In recent years, part of it was annexed by the adjoining city of Fairlawn, and the rest is included in the Montrose-Ghent census-designated place. It had been a quiet hamlet for much of its history, with such establishments as a drive-in theater, golf courses and a church. It became a busy retail area in the 1990s as new commercial development moved in.
Montrose was originally called Latta's Corners and then Ellis' Corners. (Doyle, 1908) It has had other names as well.
