History

John Struthers, from Washington County, Pennsylvania, purchased 400 acres of Poland Township land in 1798. This land would later be known as the present day city of Struthers. Struthers' early history centers on Yellow Creek which was the site for the first iron blast furnace built west of Pittsburgh. The furnace was built in 1803 by Daniel Eaton and is mentioned in the first line of the 1995 Bruce Springsteen song "Youngstown". Several furnaces were built along the creek during the first decade of the 1800s and all ceased to exist after The War of 1812 began. The land on the Yellow Creek would lay dormant for more than 50 years until Thomas Struthers, son of John Struthers, bought back the land his father had lost following the War of 1812 in 1865. Thomas Struthers laid out the village that year and gave it his family's name.

In 1869 Struthers again became an iron producing community with the construction of the Anna Furnace by the Struthers. Iron Company. In 1880 there was added the sheet mill plant of the Summer's Brothers Co., and in 1888 the plant of the J. A. and D. P. Cooper Gear Company. With all these activities Struthers still remained a village of less than 1,000 inhabitants, after 100 years had elapsed since John. Struthers built his first cabin and erected the sawmill and grist mill on Yellow Creek. In 1899 Struthers was brought into closer communication with Youngstown and the upper Mahoning Valley by the completion of an interurban electric line. In 1902 the neighboring village of East Youngstown (now Campbell) was started. This new community was started shortly after the incorporation of The Youngstown Iron Sheet and Tube Company (known as The Youngstown Sheet and Tube Co., since 1905).


With the steel industry booming in the early part of the 1900s, many European immigrants from diverse backgrounds flooded into Struthers. A village in 1902 when it was officially incorporated, Struthers quickly became a city in 1920. The steel industry allowed the city to flourish until 1977 when several area plants closed their doors for good. The city padded the loss of thousands of jobs by using its industrial infrastructure to lure non-steel making jobs, but population losses have continued throughout the start of the new century.[1] Steel framework Steel is a metal alloy whose major component is iron, with carbon being the primary alloying material. ...

The Mahoning River Watershed - Struthers, Ohio (2420 words)
Struthers is a living demonstration of what a community can do when it takes advantage of regional resources and thinks 50 to 100 years down the road instead of one to five years.
In particular, Struthers persists by encouraging the development of a variety of projects that harmonize with one another so that industry and recreational opportunities are not at cross purposes, projects that honor the community's history and its dependence on the Mahoning River, projects that ensure the river's intact riparian zone will remain protected.
Struthers' downtown is the city's primary commercial center, located not far from the river at the center of a 12,000-person community with an additional 12,000 more passing through daily (many of those from neighboring Campbell and Lowellville), is making a comeback.
