County Information

Mahoning County was formed from Trumbull and Columbia Counties, March 1, 1846. Smith, Goshen, Green, Beaver and Springfield Townships originally formed part of Columbiana County, and the other townships formed the southern part of Trumbull. The county was named from the Mahoning river, which in turn was named from a Native American word meaning "salt lick"
