Youngstown Ohio Culture
The Youngstown / Warren area is a great place to be at home and here are some of the best places to see and do good things.
Youngstown also hosts some of the best restaurants and bars in the Ohio Valley (see post # 23 here). Youngstown is also a great place for good food, great music, good food and great people (and a lot of fun!).
Youngstown is located on the Mahoning River in the western part of the Ohio Valley, north of Cleveland. Cleveland is one of the largest metropolitan areas in our state, but also home to some of Ohio's best restaurants and bars. Located on Southside Youngtown, the area on the edge of Brownlee Woods includes a number of great restaurants, bars, shops and restaurants in and around downtown.
The Butler Institute of American Art is located next to Youngstown State University and is a fascinating museum. The city is bordered to the north and east by the Ohio River, Mahoning River and Allegheny River, and to the south by the Erie Canal and Lake Erie. Youngtown State University is one of the largest public universities in Ohio State, with more than 1,000 students enrolled.
The museum, owned and operated by the Ohio Historical Society, focuses on the history of steel production in the Mahoning Valley. In the second half of the 19th century, Youngstown became the site of important railroad lines, including the Erie Canal, the Pennsylvania-Ohio Canal Company, founded in 1835, and the Pittsburgh and Ohio Railway Company. The Erie Canal was completed in 1840 and in the 1840s it became an important commercial hub in the city and its surrounding area.
Today, Youngstown, once the largest city in the Mahoning Valley, has fallen to 65,000, and the population loss has occurred not within its borders, but in Detroit and Cleveland. In the last decade alone, the youngest city - Warren - has lost more than 1.5 million residents, or about one-third of the total population.
This is unusual, but because Youngstown has its own media market, it is in the top 10 of America's largest media markets. Because it has its own media market and because of its proximity to Cleveland and Detroit and the rest of Ohio State, Youngtown is also on the list.
YSU President Jim Tressel says Youngstown State is one of the top 10 colleges and universities in the United States. The recent revitalisation of the city has also enabled it to boast a number of museums, galleries, restaurants, theatres and other cultural centres that contribute significantly to its culture and quality of life. Youngtown has a wide range of activities for people to enjoy, including art, music, dance, theater, art and entertainment. We have also seen the opening of several other museums and a variety of other cultural centers, including the Ohio State University Museum of Art and the University of Ohio Center for the Arts.
Youngstown has a city - 66,982 residents, while the city of Youngstown, Ohio (home to the Ohio State University campus and the University of Ohio Center for the Arts) has 565,773 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, with the Mahoning Valley region having a total population of 760,000, while Youngstown has a population of barely 65,000.
Important Population - In terms of population, Northeast Ohio is also an important place for organizing Appalachian migrants. The sparsely populated Ashtabula County has a reputation for creating one of the best documented immigrant communities in the United States with a population of about 1,500.
As told in Bruce Springsteen's song "Youngstown," local industrialist David Tod, who later became governor of Ohio during the Civil War, convinced steamboat owners on Lake Erie that coal extracted in the Mahoning Valley would provide fuel to their ships if there were canal traffic between Youngstown and Cleveland. He reportedly helped make northeastern Ohio the center of the U.S. steel industry. Local industrialists David Tod (who later became governor of Ohio after the Civil War) and John C. Calhoun (later governor of Ohio) convinced the owner of Lake Erie that coal mining in the Mahoneys Valley could be operated on their ships if canals were available from Youngtown to Cleveland and from Cleveland to New York City.
The 1998 work is interesting because it came to be known as "Little Feather" only a decade after the book was published, and the Appalachians would include Ashtabula. I was inspired to reach out to pretty much every resident of Ohio Living Lake Vista and ask them why they live in this Youngstown area, all the good things we do here, and why they continue to call it their home. They began to see their lives in a different light than in our past.
Many of them had their ancestors who lived in Pennsylvania before coming to Mahoning Valley, and many have memories of their grandparents and great grandparents in the area.
