Youngstown was founded in 1797 when John Young purchased 15,560 acres in the Mahoning River Valley from the United States Government through the Connecticut Land Company. By 1802, he and a survey company had laid out the Youngstown Township along the Mahoning River, seven miles west of the Pennsylvania state line.

This area was the first populated area of the Connecticut Western Reserve, and during the earliest part of the 20th century, immigrants from all over the world came to the Youngstown area to start a new life. With that wave of immigrants came a wide variety of customs and traditions, and today, that rich heritage helps define the Mahoning Valley!
