About Ironton, OH

Ironton was founded in 1849 by John Campbell, a prominent pig iron manufacturer in the area. Interested in expanding his foundry business, and due to the area's rich iron-ore content (particularly in the hills to the north), he became interested in the lands surrounding what would later become the city of Ironton. [ citation needed ] He chose the location of Ironton because of its site along the Ohio River, which would allow for water transport of iron ore to markets downriver. He knew that the slope of the land would aid in the transport of the raw material to the local blast furnaces. [ citation needed ] Between 1850 and 1890, Ironton was one of the foremost producers of iron in the world.
