Campbell (/ˈkæməl/;[5] "CAM-ell") is a city in Mahoning County, Ohio, United States. The population was 8,235 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Youngstown-Warren-Boardman, OH-PA Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Campbell was first called East Youngstown and this designation still appears on real estate deeds between 1902 and 1926, when the city was renamed for local industrialist James Campbell, then chairman of the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company.[6]

History[edit]

In 1902 the Youngstown Iron, Sheet and Tube Co. established a factory near the Mahoning River, in Coitsville Township. The resulting settlement was called East Youngstown, due to its location SE from the already-established Youngstown.[7] The village was incorporated in 1908, as its population swelled with mostly young immigrants to work in the steel industry. In 1926 the town officially became known as the City of Campbell, to recognize James Anson Campbell.[8]

Campbell is sometimes referred to as the "City of Churches" because of the wide variety of religious structures found throughout the community.
