Community Information: Youngstown, OH Area
Youngstown, Ohio is a mid-sized city located in the northeastern part of the state, and it is the largest city in and county seat of Mahoning County. The city has a population of 60,068 people, according to the 2020 census, making it the 11th-largest city in Ohio. It is part of the Youngstown-Warren metropolitan area, which has a population of 541,243 people, making it the seventh-largest metro area in Ohio and the 107th-largest in the United States.
Youngstown was named after John Young, an early settler who established the community's first sawmill and gristmill. It is situated on the Mahoning River, approximately 58 miles southeast of Cleveland and 61 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. Despite its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, the city falls within the Appalachian Ohio region and is located among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.
The city was an early industrial center in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, known for its steel production. However, the decline of heavy industry and the movement of jobs offshore has led to the city being classified as part of the Rust Belt. The decline in population has been significant, with a decrease of more than 60% since 1959.
Despite these challenges, Youngstown has seen significant revitalization in recent years, particularly in downtown. The area has become a center of culture, entertainment, and innovation, with new bars, restaurants, and businesses opening. The DoubleTree by Hilton, the city's first new downtown hotel since 1974, opened in 2018 in the historic Stambaugh Building, which was adapted for this use. Several businesses, such as Turning Technologies, an education technology company, are headquartered in Downtown Youngstown. The Youngstown Foundation Amphitheater is also a recent addition to the area, providing a venue for outdoor concerts and events.
