Buckeye Land Company office
Description: A photograph of the Buckeye Land Company Office in Youngstown, Ohio, ca. 1910-1919. The Buckeye Land Company, a subsidiary of Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company, provided housing for Youngstown Sheet and Tube employees. Organized by James A. Campbell, Youngstown Sheet and Tube appropriated $250,000 for the project in May 1916. Eventually the company would complete four housing developments: Blackburn Plat, Overlook Plat, Highview Plat, and Loveland Farms. These neighborhoods not only provided the steelworkers and their families affordable and modern housing, but also provided them with a sense of community. View on Ohio Memory.
