DescriptionFounded in 1798 on the banks of the Ohio River, East Liverpool was once a leading producer of pottery. Surrounded by an area rich in natural clays and coal, the city manufactured about half the nation's pottery until the industry declined in the early 1930s. The city's downtown sits along the route of the Old Lincoln Highway and is near the first survey line for the Northwest Territory.
Hall China Co., on the eastern edge of town on SR 39, offers guided tours by advanced reservation explaining the making of chinaware from raw clay to the finished product; phone (330) 385-2900.
