In 1795, Nehemiah Hubbard, Jr., an energetic and respected merchant from Middletown, Connecticut, purchased a plot of about 15,274 acres (62 km2), known as Hubbard Township. After purchasing the Hubbard Township property, Nehemiah Hubbard made his first sale of land to Samuel Tylee, a surveyor in Connecticut, and engaged him as his agent in this new territory. Tylee and others then came to find and measure plots suitable for sale to early settlers.
Until 1861 Hubbard remained a country-crossroads with relatively few houses or inhabitants; however, when the coal fields began to develop, the corners rapidly became a village. The increase in population was due for the most part to the emigration of people from Europe, people in search of the opportunity of a better way of life.

The city of Hubbard is served by The Hubbard Exempted Village School District, which incorporates Hubbard City and Hubbard Township. The school district is bounded by the Pennsylvania border on the east, the Brookfield School District to the north, the Liberty School District to the west and Youngstown City Schools to the south.
In 2008, Hubbard Schools started reorganization from a K-4-4-4 into a K-12 plan. The Aging Roosevelt Elementary School (formerly grades K-4), Reed Middle School (formerly grades 5-8) and Hubbard High School(Formerly grades 9-12) were demolished and replaced by a single unified facility, reusing land from the middle and high schools. The unified facilities plan will incorporate the existing Hubbard Community Pool facility. The new high school facility was opened to students for the 2010 school year, with the Middle and elementary sections currently under construction with an estimated completion date of the start of the 2012 school year. Estimated cost of the project is $56 Million, which the high school component having cost $20 Million.
An added feature for the school district is the Hubbard Community Pool, an indoor pool that provides swim safety instruction for all students in grades 4-8 and provides a venue for the swim and diving teams of the school district. Currently the District is run by Superintendent Richard J. Buchenic, Blaise Karlovic as the Treasurer, and five elected community members comprising the Board of Education.
