Youngstown is located in northeastern Ohio in Mahoning County and it is the county seat. It lies about 40 miles east of Akron on the banks of the Mahoning River.

Youngstown was settled in 1797 and named in honor of John Young of New York, who bought the site of the future city from the Connecticut Land Company. The town was incorporated in 1848. The population estimate for July 1, 1998 was 84,650, a decrease of 11,082 since 1990.
