Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company's Loveland Farms   Save
Campbell Historical Photograph Collection
Description: Construction of the neighborhood in Loveland Farms Plat, Youngstown, Ohio, ca. 1919. Loveland Farms grew so quickly that it soon offered its own public school, the Buckeye School, for the children of its residents. 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.
