Sebring, Ohio, was founded by the Sebring family from East Liverpool. They owned and operated many pottery businesses. The Sebring family dreamed of building their own pottery town that would stand as a memorial to their work and ideals. They decided upon an area in Mahoning County, 80 miles west of Pittsburgh and five miles east of Alliance. They chose 200 acres of farmland near the Mahoning River that was near a railroad line. Later, a 160 acre tract was added. Articles of Incorporation were filed in 1899.
In April, 1898, work began on the factories, stores and homes that would become known as "Sebring." The Sebring brothers, their parents (George and Elizabeth), and their sisters each built beautiful homes. These potteries at one time employed approximately 3,300 workers. The Sebring pottery industry flourished for many years. At one time Sebring was known as the "Pottery Capital of The World." From these beginnings Sebring has remained a small town. Although only a few pottery "decorating" firms still remain, other types of manufacturers have located here.
Sebring is located at (40.923552, -81.024233).
