Founded in 1798 as the capital of the Connecticut Western Reserve, Warren, Ohio, began its storied history as a small village of Connecticut settlers along the banks of the Mahoning River. Rapid economic growth over the next 200 years saw Warren transform into a cutting-edge manufacturing powerhouse of steel mills, automobile producers, and electric companies, creating a community of industry and innovation that led to Warren’s motto, “The City of Modern Methods.” From hosting the headquarters for the National Woman Suffrage Association to boasting the largest steel blast furnace in the world, Warren’s illustrious legacy is chronicled in this book through images that showcase its landscapes and businesses and the people who created them.
