History of Westlake Ohio From Wikipedia

Westlake Ohio, originally a part of Dover Township, was first settled on October 10, 1810.

In the early 1910s, the northern part of the township seceded to form Bay Village. In 1912, a southern portion left to join North Olmsted. The remaining township residents formed Dover Village in 1913, taking with it a portion of Olmsted Township.

Dover Village was renamed the Village of Westlake in 1940. This was done to eliminate confusion with Dover, Ohio (itself now part of the Cleveland television market). The village of Westlake became a city in 1957.[1] The Westlake Historical Society formed in the 1960s, informs and educates others about the history of Dover/ Westlake.
