Ohio Guide Photographs
Description: Handwritten on reverse: "High School, Mingo Jct., O. Miller and Son, 436 Market St., Steubenville, Ohio." Mingo Junction High School was dedicated in 1930. The 3-story brick building replaced the Central High School, which was destroyed by fire in 1917. A new gymnasium was added in 1957. The Mingo Indian tribe (now referred to as the Seneca-Cayuga tribe) once had a settlement at the location of the present-day village, which is the source of its name. Originally known as Mingo Bottom, it was the starting point for the ill-fated Crawford expedition against hostile Indians in 1782, during the American Revolutionary War. View on Ohio Memory.
