Toronto, Ohio 1899. Drawn by A. E. Downs.

Reproduction panorama map of Toronto, Ohio, drawn by Albert E. Downs and published by A. E. Downs & James B. Moyer in 1899. Toronto was settled along the banks of the Ohio River in the early 1800s as "Newburg". The town was situated on high ground above the river's flood plain and was regularly used as a steamboat landing and supplier of goods to various Knox and Island Creek Townships. In 1856 William Sloane granted the right of way for the Cleveland & Pittsburg Railroad to expand through the village and since there was already a Newburg on that line the town was dubbed "Sloane's Station". With the railroad in place Sloane's Station now looked inviting to manufacturers and several factories were established. The town was incorporated as Toronto in 1881 and a municipal building was completed in 1887. In 1899, with its downtown streets paved in fire brick, Toronto was home to over 3,000 and had recently expanded its limits to include the village of Fosterville to the north and Markle to the south. This map was edited to repair distracting black holes.
