Port of Massillon[edit]

The original settlement of Kendal was founded in 1812 by Thomas Rotch, a Quaker originally of New Bedford, Massachusetts, and Hartford, Connecticut. James Duncan of New Hampshire first settled in Kendal before recording the plot for Massillon in December 6, 1826. Duncan, known as the city's founder, named the town after Jean Baptiste Massillon, a French Catholic bishop, at the request of his wife.[7] The town plat was established along the east bank of the Tuscarawas River, which was the surveyed route for the Ohio and Erie Canal being constructed to connect Lake Erie with the Ohio River. The canal section spanning from Cleveland to Massillon was completed in 1828.[8] Massillon quickly became a major port town along the canal route, known as the Port of Massillon, following the canal's completion in the 1832.[9] The first telegraph lines would reach Massillon in 1847, and the Ohio & Pennsylvania Railroad would extend its rails to Massillon in 1852.[10] Massillon incorporated as a village in 1853. In 1868, Massillon incorporated as a city when the populated reached 5,000.[10]

C. M. Russell & Company[edit]

The C. M. Russell & Company, formed in 1842[10] by Charles. M. Russell and his brothers, Nahum Russell and Clement Russell, manufactured threshing machines and other agricultural implements in Massillon. The company began producing train cars in 1852 and incorporated in 1864 as Russell & Company Inc. In 1884, Russell & Company begain producing its famed steam traction engines and quickly became one of the largest producers of industrial and agricultural equipment.[11] A merger with the Griscom-Spencer company in 1912 created the Griscom-Russell Company.[12] Griscom-Russell produced heat exchangers for the United States Navy during World War II.[13] The company closed in 1962.[10]

Massillon Bridge Company[edit]

The Massillon Iron Bridge Company was founded by Joseph Davenport in 1869 [10] after moving to Massillon from Boston to work at the C. M. Russell & Company. Davenport also invented and built the first locomotive "cowcatcher" and cab in Massillon. The company incorporated in 1887 as The Massillon Bridge Company. The Massillon Bridge Company designed and built steel truss bridges up through the mid-1900s, many of which stand today.

Massillon State Hospital[edit]

The Massillon State Hospital for the Insane opened in 1898[10] on 240 acres of land given to the state of Ohio for the purpose of constructing the hospital. The hospital was established by Ohio governor William McKinley. By 1950 there were 3,100 patients in the hospital.[14] Today it is known as Heartland Behavioral Healthcare.[15]

Jewel Motor Car Company[edit]

The Forest City Motor Company was founded in Cleveland in 1906 but relocated to Massillon that same year.[10] Forest City produced approximately 1,000 of their Jewel automobiles in Massillon between 1906 and 1909. The name of the company was changed to the Jewel Motor Car Company but the company eventually ceased production in 1909.[16]

Steel Era[edit]

Although steelmaking and fabrication is found throughout its history, some say Massillon's steel age didn't start until 1909, when the first sheet of steel was rolled at the Massillon Rolling Mill Company. Massillon Rolling merged into the Central Steel Company in 1914, and lit its first open hearth furnace in 1915. Central Steel eventually became known as the Central Alloy Steel Company. In April 1930, Central Alloy merged with Republic Steel,[17] becoming the third largest steel company in the world, with its Massillon operations employing nearly one-half of the city's workforce by 1959. This included other Massillon divisions like Massillon Union Drawn Steel and its stainless steel division Enduro Stainless. In 1984 Republic Steel was purchased by LTV Steel.[18] Enduro closed in 1985, and it and other stainless plants went through several ownership changes over the following 15 years.[19] The main Republic facilities on the southwest side of Massillon closed by 2002.[20]

Massillon Steel Joist[edit]

Stanley Macomber designed the open-web steel joist in 1921 while working for Massillon's Central Steel Company.[21] Macomber left Central Steel and founded the Massillon Steel Joist Co. in 1923. His open-web steel joist, patented in 1924, was known as the Massillon Steel Joist. Macomber's invention was a revolutionary assembly of steel joists with a top slab used to support of floors, ceilings and roofs. The basis of Macomber's steel joist design is still used today. Stanley Macomber was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame in 2011.[22]

Lincoln Highway[edit]

Lincoln Highway, the first U.S. highway to run from coast to coast, was envisioned in 1913[23] and followed Main Street through the center of Massillon. Main Street was eventually renamed Lincoln Way in recognition of the new highway.[24] In 1928, the federal government renamed Lincoln Highway to U.S. 30. A controlled access freeway was constructed in 1971, bypassing U.S. 30 around to the city's most southern part.[10] The old Lincoln Highway that runs through Massillon and Canton was reassigned as State Route 172.

Little Steel Strike[edit]

Massillon was a site where one of the most tragic instances of anti-union violence in the history of the United States occurred. The Steel Workers Organizing Committee began an attempt to organize workers at Republic Steel in the spring of 1937, following the unionizing of workers at the country's two largest steel companies US Steel and Jones & Laughlin Steel. In retaliation, Republic Steel expelled over 1000 union supporters at plants in Canton and Massillon. On May 26, the union eventually called for all workers at Republic Steel, Youngstown Sheet and Tube, and Inland Steel (together known as Little Steel) to strike in response to the treatment of workers in Massillon and Canton.

On the night of July 11, 1937, a car failed to dim its headlights as it approached a police barracade near a picket line at one of the Massillon plants. City police assumed the worst and without warning opened fire with rifles and shotguns. Police then used this infraction to raid a peaceful crowd that was gathered in front of the union headquarters. Police pumped tear gas canisters and opened fire into the fleeing crowd. Joined by National Guardsmen, the police destroyed the union hall and arrested every suspected unionist they could find. Three men were killed and hundreds were injured during this incident.[25]

Ohio Historical Marker #18-76 was erected in 2004 in front of the Massillon City Hall in memory of the Little Steel Strike of 1937.[26]

Coxey's Army[edit]

Jacob S. Coxey, Sr., sometimes known as General Coxey (April 16, 1854 – May 18, 1951) of Massillon was an American politician who ran for elective office several times in Ohio. He twice led Coxey's Army, in 1894 and 1914, consisting of a group of unemployed men that he led on marches from Massillon to Washington, D.C., to present a "Petition in Boots" demanding that the Congress allocate funds to create jobs for the unemployed. Although his march failed, Coxey's Army was an early attempt to arouse political interest in an issue that grew in importance until the Social Security Act of 1935 encouraged the establishment of state unemployment insurance programs.

Jacob Coxey was elected mayor of Massillon in 1931 and served one year.[12]

Attractions[edit]

Massillon Museum
Lions Lincoln Theatre

Massillon Museum[edit]

The Massillon Museum was established in 1933 in order to preserve the city's rich history.[10] The museum was accredited in 1972 by the American Alliance of Museums and is currently located downtown in the historic Gensemer Brothers Dry Goods building.[58] The museum's collection encompasses approximately 100,000 objects[59] in 94 categories, 60,000 photographs, and 18,000 archival and reference documents. The Immel Circus is one of the museum's most interesting collections. The 100-square foot miniature circus contains 2,620 pieces: thirty-six elephants, 186 horses, 102 assorted animals, ninety-one wagons, seven tents, and 2,207 people. Most of the pieces were hand-carved by Dr. Robert Immel of Massillon using tools from his dental practice.[60]

Lions Lincoln Theatre[edit]

The 1915 landmark movie theatre, designed by Guy Tilden, was saved from demolition by the local Lions International club in 1982. The theatre is thought to be one of the oldest purpose built movie houses in the country still in operation. One of the theatre's two arc lamp 35mm projectors was replaced by a digital projector in 2013. Today the theatre hosts community events, and screens classic and second run movies on weekends.[61]

Ohio Military Museum[edit]

Football[edit]

Football has long been one of the most prominent contributions to the culture of Massillon.

Professional Football[edit]

While the first players known to be paid to play football are believed to have played for club teams in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, perhaps the first great professional football rivalry was between the Massillon Tigers and Canton Bulldogs from 1903 to 1906 and 1915 to 1919. This rivalry predates both the NFL and the aforementioned rivalry between the Massillon and Canton high schools which continue to use the nicknames of these early professional teams. The Professional Football Researchers Association (PFRA) web site includes articles about the early years of this rivalry,[65] as well as articles about the history of football through the 1970s.

Massillon Tigers[edit]

Paul Brown Tiger Stadium filled to capacity during the annual Massillon Tiger-Canton Mckinley football game

The name Massillon is most notably associated with the Massillon Washington High School football team, the Tigers. Distinguished Massillon alumni include former Ohio State University, Cleveland Browns, and Cincinnati Bengals coach Paul Brown,[66] and former Ohio State University player and former NFL All-Pro linebacker Chris Spielman.[67] The Tigers are historically one of the winningest high school football teams in the United States, second only to Valdosta High School in Valdosta, Georgia.[68] Along with the Canton McKinley High School Bulldogs, the Tigers represent one half of what many consider to be the greatest high school football rivalry in the nation.[69] Both Massillon and their fierce rivalry with Canton are subjects of the 2001 documentary film Go Tigers!.[70]

Paul Brown Tiger Stadium[edit]

A look inside the Paul L. David Athletic Center located next to Paul Brown Tiger Stadium

The construction of Paul Brown Tiger Stadium in Massillon was completed in 1939 through the Works Progress Administration program.[13] The stadium currently holds 16,884 people[71] and is named after former Tiger player and head coach Paul Brown. Besides being the regular season home of the Massillon Tiger Football team, the stadium hosts numerous Ohio High School Athletic Association state football playoff games as well as divisional championship games.[72] The stadium also hosts the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame drum and bugle corps competition.[73] The stadium is marked with a historical marker dedicated to Paul Brown and his contribution to the sport [74]

Paul L. David Athletic Training Center[edit]

Massillon's Paul L. David Athletic Training Center was built in 2008 by local philanthropist Jeff David in honor of his late father. The 3 million dollar, 80,000 square foot building is the largest indoor football practice facility in the state of Ohio, 20,000-square-feet larger than the facility used by the NFL's Cleveland Browns.[75][76]

City of Champions[edit]

The Massillon Tigers have accumulated 22 state AP championships and 9 national AP championships during the school's history. As of 2012, the Tigers have accumulated an overall record of 837-249-35, a performance not approached by any Ohio high school football team. In the years since the Ohio high school playoff system was instituted in 1972, the Tigers have accumulated a current record of 316-117-4. The Tigers have made the playoffs 19 times, the final four six times, and the final championship game three times. There have been 23 professional players, 3 NFL coaches, and 14 collegiate all-Americans that have graduated from Massillon Washington High School.[77]

Tiger Swing Band[edit]

Tiger Swing Band performing during halftime

The Massillon Tiger Swing Band was created by the legendary George "Red" Bird in 1938 during the Paul Brown era of Massillon football. The band became known as "The Greatest Show in High School Football" and is still a very important part of the Massillon football tradition. The band's swing style includes moving formations and musicians marching with a swing step. The Tiger Swing band begins every home football game with the traditional hometown songs of Massillon Will Shine, Stand Up and Cheer (to acknowledge the other team), the National Anthem, Eye of the Tiger and the WHS Alma Mater. At the beginning of each half time show, they perform what is known as "Opening Routine." This is a tradition that goes back for decades and consists of the band's entrance ("Turn Arounds") followed by Fanfare, Tiger Rag and Carry On. This entire routine is marched at 180 beats per minute and is practiced from the beginning of the rehearsals through the entire season.[78]

ESPN Titletown U.S.A finalist[edit]

In July 2008 Massillon was nominated as one of only twenty cities nationwide as a finalist in ESPN's "Titletown U.S.A" contest.[79] On July 21, a rally was held at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium while ESPN filmed a segment that was aired on SportsCenter.
