Please add profiles of those who were born, lived or died in Youngstown, Ohio.

Youngstown is the county seat of Mahoning County and extends into Trumbull County.


The city was named for John Young, an early settler from Whitestown, New York, who established the community's first sawmill and gristmill. Youngstown is in a region of America that is often referred to as the Rust Belt. Traditionally known as a center of steel production, Youngstown was forced to redefine itself when the U.S. steel industry fell into decline in the 1970s, leaving communities throughout the region without major industry. The city has experienced a decline of over 60% of its population since 1959. Youngstown also falls within the Appalachian Ohio region, among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

Youngstown is the subject of the song by Bruce Springsteen on his 1995 album The Ghost of Tom Joad. Links
