PALMER TRAVEL— "Celebrating a Century" of professional service as the successor to Canton, Ohio's, original travel company founded in 1905. The company, known as Jacob Travel, was founded by William Jacob and was located in downtown Canton at 306 South Cherry Street. The primary business at the time was selling tickets for steamship travel from Europe to Ellis Island, New York and rail travel from New York to Canton, Ohio. The business continued to blossom and the company was relocated to the Landmark Building on the corner of Cherry and Tuscawaras Streets NE. Then in 1934 the travel agency moved once again to 150 Fourth St. NE and again in 1940 the business was relocated to the Courtland Hotel, still in downtown. With the new airport being built on Lauby Road, business continued to grow and larger accommodations were necessary so the move to 128 Cleveland Avenue South in 1946. Once more a final move in 1969 was made to the new Cleve-Tusc. Building, also known as the William R. Day Building, at the corner of Cleveland Avenue and Tuscarawas Street W, where it remained until 1996. Floyd Breit, an employee of Eastern Airlines, left Eastern Airlines to join Jacob Travel. Some years later, in 1969, Mr. Breit purchased Jacob Travel from the Jacob family and renamed the business Breit Travel. He operated Breit Travel until early 1980 when he sold the business to Donna Palmer. Donna Palmer has been the owner of Palmer Travel for the past 25 years. In 1990, the decision was made to open a second office on Everhard Road to accommodate the rapidly growing travel business. Eventually, the downtown Canton and Everhard Road locations were combined and relocated to 5366 Fulton Drive NW where our office remains today. Palmer Travel is independently owned and operated and has grown from the early years of steamship travel to the present time as a full-service travel company providing professional service and guidance both for the corporate travelers as well as vacationers. Palmer Travel maintains a staff of eight with 110 years of combined knowledge and experience.
