River Styx is an unincorporated community in Medina County, Ohio, United States.[1] River Styx is located 4.5 miles from Wadsworth and 6.5 miles from Medina.

A post office called River Styx was established in 1828, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1905.[2] The community and the nearby Styx River derive their names from the Styx, a river in Greek mythology.[3] River Styx has been noted for its unusual place name.[4]

There is a cemetery that was established as a pioneer homestead graveyard in 1821.[5]

মেরি অলিভার এ সময়ের প্রধান আমেরিকান কবি। হেনরী ডেভিড থরো আর ওয়াল্ট হুইটম্যানের প্রভাব দেখা যায় তাঁর কবিতায়। এমিলি ডিকিনসনের সাথেও তুলনা করা হয় মেরি অলিভারকে। এ পর্যন্ত খুব কম সাক্ষাৎকার প্রকাশিত হয়েছে তাঁর। একান্তে থাকতে ভালোবাসেন কবি।
