Toronto, Ohio

From Academic Kids

Toronto is a city located in Jefferson County, Ohio. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 5,676 (Torontoans).

The area was first settled in the 19th century, when it was known as Newburg's Landing. When the railway was built, however, the area's name was changed to Sloan Station. In 1881, after a vote, the town was incorporated under its present name. This was taken from the larger Toronto, Ontario, Canada, which civic leader Thomas M. Daniels felt was a place worth emulating.

In the 20th century the town became a center of heavy industry with a number of large factories in and around the town. In the 1980s and 1990s the city, along with the rest of the region, declined sharply as manufacturing jobs left. Today the only major employer is the Titanium Metals Corporation, and it is employing fewer and fewer workers each year. The town is today quite poor.

Local sights include Toronto High School, the Blue Danube bar, Margaret's Cafe, and the Toronto Police Station.

The most famous person to have lived in Toronto is television actor Robert Urich.
