Historic Map - Youngstown, OH - 1882

Panoramic view of the city of Youngstown, county seat of Mahoning Co., Ohio 1882. By A. Ruger. Copyright by J. J. Stoner. Beck & Pauli, lithographers.

Reproduction bird's eye view map of Youngstown, Ohio, looking southwest, drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Ruger & Stoner in 1882. Youngstown was founded along the Mahoning River in 1797 and incorporated in 1802. It was an area of the Western Reserve of Connecticut, reserved for refugees of Connecticut's "Firelands". It was named for landowner John Young, who had originally surveyed the land and set up the first saw mill and grist mill in the area.

Iron ore and coal deposits were soon discovered near Youngstown and the Hopewell Furnace was built by Daniel and James Heaton establishing Youngstown as an iron industry center. Transportation was key here with the addition of the Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal in the 1830's and railroads beginning in the 1850's. In the late 1800's, Youngstown was a major intersection for several railroads and was becoming a manufacturing center for steel. The county seat for Mahoning County was moved here from nearby Canfield in 1876.
The map features clearly labeled street names showing scenes of carriage, pedestrian and railroad traffic.
