East Liverpool History

Originally this city was called St. Clair. It was so named by Thomas Fawcett who was one of the earlier land owners. Later, the area was also known as Fawcettstown for some time. In 1834, it was officially incorporated as East Liverpool. It went on to acquire a reputation as "The Crockery City" and, at its peak, produced over half of the entire United States' annual crockery output. There were more 300 potteries in the city at that time. However, this business declined from the mid-1960s onwards when pottery was outsourced from South Korea, Taiwan and China.
