Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company's Loveland Farms
Description: Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company's Loveland Farms, Youngstown, Ohio, ca. 1919. This housing development contained several housing types and styles consistent with the time period in which they were constructed. This included bungalows and the Arts and Crafts style. Loveland Farms had many amenities such as parks, playgrounds and sports teams. These homes were located on the southside of Youngstown. The Loveland Farms development was the most exclusive of the Sheet and Tube housing developments, only offering homes to skilled workmen, foremen and superintendents. They were available for purchase to white American-born employees of the company only. The Buckeye Land Company would offer these homes with life insurance policies to qualified employees of the company. Other housing complexes were built to house foreign-born and African American workers. View on Ohio Memory.
