Green Township was first created in 1809 as part of Stark County. Green Township became part of Summit County after that county's establishment in 1840. Green had several unincorporated hamlets, most notably Greensburg. By 1900, five unincorporated settlements were in Green Township, surrounded by farmlands with valuable crops and areas of coal. The local economy transitioned from farming to business and manufacturing. By 1950, farmers began to sell their lands to developers for residential housing. The increased development in the community led to discussions about becoming a city. Voters approved the merger of the village with the rest of the township in 1991. In the beginning of 1991, Green Township was incorporated as the Village of Green. The village was declared a city in 1992, with the first city mayor being John Torok.
