Cortland History

Cortland, which is located in Trumbull County, Ohio, was also once known as Baconsburg as well as Calvert. The name Baconsburg was derived from Samuel Bacon who built several buildings and a sawmill in the area. The origin of the name can also be attributed to a railway conductor, who could not fit the longish name Baconsburg on his sign and thus renamed the city "Cortland." A railroad was built in 1874, and the city of Cortland was chartered in 1980.
