Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company's Loveland Farms
Description: A Colonial Revival style home of Loveland Farms, Youngstown, Ohio, ca. 1919. While Loveland Farms offered specific architectural styles and types to buyers, the Buckeye Land Company rarely offered the Colonial Revival style and this style was not heavily advertised in the Buckeye Land Company brochures. Located on the southside of Youngstown, Loveland Farms had many 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.
