Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company's Loveland Farms
Description: A neighborhood in Loveland Farms Plat, Youngstown, Ohio, ca. 1919. Located on the southside of Youngstown, this plat offered not only all of the modern amenities, but also had a post office sub-station for its residents. Loveland Farms had many other amenities such as parks, playgrounds and sports teams. 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.
