Description: This map depicts the Loveland Farms development for workers and their families in Youngstown, Ohio, ca. 1919. The Buckeye Land Company projected to have one thousand available lots of 6,500 square feet each in the Loveland Farms plat, but only 275 homes were built. 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.
