Panoramic view of the city of Niles, Trumbull Co., Ohio 1882. Beck & Pauli Lith.

Panoramic reproduction view of the city of Niles, Ohio drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Ruger & Stoner in 1882. Niles was founded in 1806 along the Mahoning River by James Heaton, who owned an iron ore processing plant there. Heaton produced the first bar iron in Ohio. The town originally went by the name "Heaton's Furnace", but was later renamed after Hezekiah Niles, editor of the "Niles Register", a Baltimore newspaper. Niles was situated right in the industrial belt and prospered with iron and steel manufacturing and glassmaking until the economic depression of 1873, which eventually brought down the community's largest industrial firm, James Ward & Co. William McKinley was born in Niles in 1843 and at the time of the map was serving with the United States House of Representatives. The map shows the new iron bridge, completed in this year by the Morse Bridge Co. of Youngstown.

The map features clearly labeled street names with scenes of carriage and railroad traffic.
