Welcome to


Welcome to the Carnation City — home of a top Ohio university, an exciting annual festival and a huge variety of cultural, recreational and educational facilities. Alliance, located in the northeast corner of Stark County, is on the cusp of Stark, Portage, Columbiana and Mahoning counties, which means it is only a stone’s throw away from several of the state’s centers, including Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Columbus and Youngstown.  At just over 22,000 residents, the Alliance area is served by the Alliance City School District and two local school districts in addition to private schools. Alliance is home to several unique cultural attractions including The Cat Fanciers’ Association, the World War History and Art Museum and Crandall Art Gallery. Visitors enjoy touring the many historical locations such as Alliance City Cemetery, Glamorgan Castle, the Mabel Hartzell Historical Home and the Haines House, an Underground Railroad site. Several parks provide recreational opportunities for Alliance residents. Silver Park, a 53-acre city park, is a central point for many area events, including the annual Greater Alliance Carnation Festival. Other parks, including Butler-Rodman Park, Early Hill and Memorial Park, provide a variety of recreational opportunities, such as a skate park, sporting facilities and shelters. Alliance’s Department of Parks maintains 220 acres and 24 parks and parklands, from small neighborhood gardens to 60acre complexes. Carnation City Mall is a popular shopping destination for locals, providing a mixture of several retail shops. Downtown Alliance, which has begun regenerating as an eccentric arts district, is home to many unique thrift, antique and gift shops. Freedom Square and the red caboose are popular meeting points. This Community and Resource Guide was produced in cooperation with the Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce. For additional copies of this guide, visit or call the chamber office at 210 E.

2075 W. State Street, Alliance, Ohio


What’s in a The town christened Alliance was formed in 1850 from the union of three villages — Williamsport, Freedom and Liberty. Because of the merging of the three unique villages, the town became known as Alliance, a word that means union or partnership. The village of Mount Union joined in 1889. Some believe that Alliance’s name came from “The Crossing,” a popular railroad intersection in the city. Two major railroad lines, the Ohio and Pennsylvania lines, crossed there. The name could reflect the merging of two lines. Alliance’s botanical nickname didn’t come around until 1959, when the Ohio Legislature recognized the city as the Carnation City. The scarlet carnation was chosen as Ohio’s state flower in 1904, as the cultivator of the red blossom was an Alliance native. Local doctor, horticulturist and politician Dr. Levi Lamborn propagated the flower from French seedlings in 1886. Later, he opposed future president William McKinley for a seat representing the 18th Congressional District. It is said that before each debate, Lamborn presented McKinley with a

boutonniere adorned with a scarlet carnation. McKinley began to refer to the flower as a good luck symbol and, as president, often wore a scarlet boutonniere and decorated his desk with scarlet, blossom-filled vases. On Sept. 6, 1901, just moments after removing the famous flower from his lapel, McKinley was greeting a line of people at an exposition in Buffalo, N.Y., when he was struck by an assassin’s bullet. Legend says that McKinley removed the carnation to give it to a young admirer. He died eight days later.

Alliance Community Guide 2012/2013

A letter from Mayor Andreani As we approach the second decade of this new millennium and look to our city’s future, it is good to reflect on the progress made over the past decade. The city has seen many new and revitalized institutions over the last 10 years. Those institutions include social, business, educational, religious, and financial entities that are making continuous efforts to grow and prosper. Most of this was done during a decade that saw major economic downturns, one of which was considered the worst since the Great Depression. As one looks back on the events of the past 10 years, it is evident that the Alliance community and its citizens demonstrate a resilience that has endured over the course of the city’s history. Alliance is at the center of the Eastern Stark County Region, providing goods and services as well as quality of life elements that attract people to our city from a regional perspective. I have seen statistics indicating that 40,000 people live within a five-mile radius of the center of Alliance. Being at the juncture of Stark, Columbiana, and Mahoning counties makes Alliance the center of commerce for the region. The business community has led the way from Alliance Castings, a major manufacturing industry that has weathered the difficult economy by re-opening twice in the last decade, to many new retail facilities. The most recent developments have included the Kohl’s Department Store, the Chipotle restaurant

and Aspen Dental. Soon to be added to the landscape on State Street will be new Panera Bread and Dairy Queen restaurants. This, when combined with earlier developments of Robertson Heating and Supply, Winkle Industries, Trilogy Plastics and Terry’s Tire Town establishing their businesses in the Industrial Park, make Alliance a viable business leader. The growth of these major businesses has been augmented by the continued prominence of numerous retail and consumer facilities, including Walmart, Lowe’s, Elder-Beerman, and J.C. Penney’s to mention a few. The educational community has seen continued growth as well. The leader has been the University of Mount Union. The University has grown, expanding its offerings to include graduate level studies in health care and education. It has recently begun a program in civil engineering and soon will add a nursing program to its offerings. It also has changed the landscape of the campus with new student housing, classroom buildings and major aesthetic improvements, all the while maintaining its tradition of academic excellence.

Also arriving on the educational scene has been Stark State College, providing additional education opportunities through its technical and career-oriented programs. The Alliance City Schools have completed their renovation and rebuilding projects and continue providing excellence in public education, including its adult education efforts with its Robert T. White School of Practical Nursing. The nearby Marlington, Sebring, and West Branch school systems all provide the greater Alliance community with excellence in primary and secondary education for our citizens. Each area of the city has experienced a growing revitalization. On the north side, the historic downtown area has seen the development of the international headquarters of the Cat Fanciers’ Association and its associated CFA Foundation. The Alliance Farmers’ Market has been a tremendous success, as has the Downtown Summer Concert Series. Arts in Stark has chosen downtown Alliance as a focus for renewal over the next decade in the areas of arts, culture, entertainment and retail. The renovated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge stands out as a major connector and tribute to Dr. King. The future is bright for the renaissance of the downtown region. The east side has seen the re-emergence of industry with the previously mentioned Alliance Castings as well as the growth of Morgan Engineering. The east side also has seen the revitalization of retail and quality of life establishments. From The College Plaza, where one can find new retail, to the World War History and Art Museum, a world class facility dedicated to preserving memorabilia created by soldiers that endured the World Wars. Memorial Park on the east side also has experienced renewed energy with the addition of the Skate Park and the potential site for the 9/11 Memorial, a moving display of artifacts from the World Trade Center. The west side has experienced the retail and commercial growth along State Street and Sawburg Avenue, adding many

new businesses providing much needed goods and services to the community. The west side also is home to the Industrial Park, where both current and new businesses have chosen to grow, building new facilities for their companies. The south side has seen new growth and expansion of residential neighborhoods. With the creation of new and desirable homes, this expansion has created a foundation for the revitalization of the housing market in Alliance. Also found on the south side is the city treasure of Silver Park, as well as the new Alliance Middle School on the gateway to Alliance from the south. We need to thank the many citizens that brought us to this point in history. From my predecessor Mayor Toni Middleton and the Alliance Chamber of Commerce to the Alliance Area Development Foundation and many civic groups, boards, commissions, and a host of dedicated volunteers. We need to build on the foundation provided for us, and I call on the Alliance community to continue progress, as we have in the past. We will do this by working together, as the namesake of our city implies, “Alliance,” the coming together of the people and the community to reach new heights.

ose-colored past History plays an important role in the Alliance we know today. The town, which was formed from the union of several small villages, traces its history back to 1850. Hundreds of years before that, though, the land in which the town sits was occupied by Hopewell Native Americans, a group of indigenous peoples that flourished all over the northeastern United States. They are famous for their mysterious mounds, craft work and pottery. A great way to unearth the town’s history is to take a tour of Alliance City Cemetery. The grounds, located on Vine Street, are the resting place of several significant Alliance natives. In fact, local cemetery historian John Gross uses a popular phrase to excite tour-goers. “If you really want to know your community, start at the cemetery,� he often says. Alliance natives J. Ridgeway Haines, World War I Col. Charles C. Weybrecht and scarlet carnation cultivator Levi Lamborn’s parents are all buried there. Haines, whose estate is now a historical site open to the public, was an active abolitionist who transformed his home into an Underground Railroad site in the 1800s. The property is now open for weekend tours. Other important natives, such as Col. William Henry Morgan, the president and owner of Morgan Engineering Co., still have a presence in the Alliance community. Morgan was the builder of Glamorgan Castle, an estate built on a 50-acre plot of land in Alliance. In its heyday, the Castle had bowling alleys, a billiard room and a large swimming pool in the basement. It was built from 100 tons of structural steel and 96 train car loads of Vermont marble. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the venue for many local events. Now, it houses the central administrative offices for Alliance City Schools. Still, the Castle is open for tours, coordinated by the Castle Crusaders. Though Alliance’s history began long ago, its heritage is palpable around town, from city streets (Glamorgan Street, Union Avenue, etc.) to the annual Carnation Festival.

Glamorgan Castle:

An enchanted attraction in the heart of the city

Placed on the National Register of Historic Places, Glamorgan Castle was commissioned by Col. William Henry Morgan, the president and owner of Morgan Engineering Company. The Castle was named after Morgan’s father’s birthplace, Glamorgan County, in Wales, U.K. The building took five years to build and was completed in 1909 at a total cost of $400,000. The Castle, which sits on a 50-acre plot of land, was built with 100 tons of structural steel and 96 train car loads of Vermont marble. The interior of the house is decorated in various styles such as Italian Renaissance, French Empire, Louis XV, Elizabethan and Japanese. The lavish Castle featured bowling alleys, a billiards room and a swimming pool. The Castle is the original design of architect Willard Hirsh and has a unique style not mimicking any other castle in the world. Hirsh also designed other local buildings including First Presbyterian Church, the Frank Dussel Home and the Oliver F. Transue home. Though the estate is now home to Alliance City Schools, tours our offered by the Castle Crusaders, a group of citizens who educate interested people about the Castle’s history. Glamorgan Castle is a popular meeting place for locals and is the venue for many area events. The annual Carnation Festival’s Vintage Base Ball tournament, Fire Truck Pump-in and car show take place here. Glamorgan Castle is located at 200 Glamorgan St. Call 330-821-2100 for more information on the Castle’s history and guided tours.

The Haines House, a significant point on the Underground Railroad

The Haines House, an Underground Railroad site in Alliance, is maintained by the Alliance Area Preservation Society. The house, owned by Jonathan Ridgeway Haines and Sarah Grant Haines, served as a site along the Underground Railroad beginning in 1853. The couple were Quaker farmers and active abolitionists who sought to aid fugitive slaves on their journey from the South. The house was a safe haven for slaves but also served as a meeting place for many abolitionist gatherings. A well-documented young people’s meeting was held there in 1859 along with several other abolitionist conventions throughout the 1860s. The preservation society offers tours to visitors who will see a traditional 1800s home, a Physical Therapy & Athletic Training Services refuge area where slaves were hidden and several Commitment to Quality Service for 31 Years period toys, including a doll that was used to Individual Patient Evaluation & Treatment Cybex Exercise & Testing Equipment signal danger to entering slaves.

Fourth of July Festival — Alliance celebrates

the Fourth of July in a big way each year. The annual festivities held at Silver Park culminate with a display of fireworks at dusk. The spectacular show is sponsored by local businesses. Each year a theme is chosen and several events are inspired by the patriotic premise. Musical entertainment, concessions, kids’ amusements and Carnation Queen introductions make this a memorable annual event to honor the red, white and blue.

The Greater Alliance Area Carnation Festival — Honoring the red blossom

In its 54th year, the Greater Alliance Area Carnation Festival brings the community together to celebrate the flower that gave Alliance its name.

Usually spanning 10 days in August, the festival begins

Alliance Community Guide 2012/2013

with the Kick-off Parade and finishes with a spectacular display of fireworks at Silver Park. The park is the central location for many of the festival’s events, including Days in the Park, a three-day event that features booths run by local organizations, crafters and food vendors. A Balloon Liftoff, which brings dozens of hot air ballooners to Alliance, departs from Silver Park during the festival. Several local bands and musical groups energize the bandstand and generate a crowd of dancers. The Alliance Symphony Orchestra performs in the evenings at Days in the Park, and a Pet Show allows Alliance’s youth to parade their pets. Another popular portion of the Carnation Festival is the Rib Fest, a gathering of many rib vendors from far and wide who sell countless rib varieties to foodies in the parking lot of Carnation City Mall. Local bands perform and children’s booths are set up. Perhaps the crowning jewel of the Carnation Festival, the annual Queen’s Pageant is held on the first Sunday of the festival. Dozens of local young women vie for the title of Carnation queen, an honor that grants them VIP access to all of the festival’s events, several hundred of dollars’ worth of prizes, and the honor of representing the Carnation City. Locals participate in contests during the weeks of the Carnation Festival, including an amateur photography contest, a flower show, a youth sports event and a vintage base ball tournament, where the Alliance Crossing Rails compete against other Vintage Base Ball teams at Glamorgan Castle. Babies born at Alliance Community Hospital during the days of the festival are dubbed Carnation Babies and are given gift bags filled with gifts. Other events, such as the Grand Parade, Ice Cream Socials, the Style Show, golf scrambles, a quilt show and two car shows, are popular events. Tours of the Mabel Hartzell Home, the Haines House, Glamorgan Castle and Alliance City Cemetery are given.

Today, the Greater Alliance Foundation has total assets of approximately $9,000,000 and since its inception has assisted more than 70 organizations through grants totaling over $3,000,000.

ECEA’s mission is to support, promote and create dynamic learning environments for children that will serve and benefit families, businesses and community partners in Alliance.

Through these strong partnerships supported by the vision of the Greater Alliance Foundation the groundwork has been laid so the children and families of Alliance can thrive.

Alliance City Schools

— Home of the Aviators

Alliance City Schools, whose motto is “the future starts here,” says that a bright future begins with a good education to help pave the path for a life of success. Alliance offers a comprehensive educational program, beginning at 3 years of age in one of the best early learning programs in the state, through grade 12. Alliance High School provides programs for many career paths, and students take advantage of the school system’s excellent and up-to-date facilities. Students are offered transportation, food services including breakfast and lunch, an afterschool program for academic assistance and creativity enhancement, health services, counseling services, and a variety of specialized services to help students with many of their needs. Parental input and communication is encouraged throughout the district as the district



Hot Pots Creative Studios West State Alliance in the Market Place Alliance

330-823-3333 38

recognizes that the first educators of each child are the parents. Together, with a focus on children, Alliance City Schools helps to ensure success for all.

The District

Just over 3,000 students are enrolled in the city schools. The system employs about 500 full-time and part-time personnel to serve the students.  Educational needs of all students including children with disabilities and gifted students are fulfilled through programs tailored to specific needs and abilities. Summer programs are offered for students in grades one through 12. Award-winning early learning programs for children age 3 through kindergarten regularly give more than 400 children a good foundation for education.


Alliance High School

Alliance High School offers numerous opportunities for students to get an early start on post-secondary education. Through progressive initiatives such as post-secondary education options and dual-credit, credit-flexibility and articulation agreements, students can start their college careers with many credits already earned. Post-secondary institutions Alliance City Schools have partnered with for these initiatives include Mount Union, Stark State College, Kent State, The University of Akron, Youngstown State, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and Hocking College. Alliance students also routinely earn college credit with high scores on advanced placement courses in studio art, biology, English literature and U.S. history. In addition to these extensive college preparatory programs, the high school curriculum includes programs in general studies and tech-prep education. Alliance offers tech-prep programs to prepare students for work or further training in a career field following high school. Programs include automotive technology, automotive collision repair, broadcast arts, computer support and services, construction trades, cosmetology, financial services and risk management, health services and athletic training, horticulture and landscape design, integrated media, welding and fabricating.  Alliance High School also offers a musical program with well over 200 students who participate

Alliance Community Guide 2012/2013

in vocal groups such as show choirs, concert choirs, and gospel choirs.       Students can join instrumental groups such as marching band, concert band, jazz band and orchestra. Alliance has one of Stark County’s only orchestra programs.  Numerous extracurricular activities are available to students. A sampling of these include 18 varsity and junior varsity athletic programs, an awardwinning Academic Challenge team, Destination Imagination Teams that have participated in competition at the state and national levels, National Honor Society, and a chapter of Students Against Destruction Decisions.

Alliance Middle School

  Alliance Middle School is housed in a facility that was recently designed and built specifically with the needs of a great middle school in mind. Middle school students are assigned to one of two teams that comprise each level. This team approach allows for smaller class sizes and a more nurturing environment where positive studentteacher relationships are emphasized.  Housing students in grades six through eight, Alliance Middle School’s academic program begins with a strong focus on a successful transition from elementary to middle school and finishes with opportunities that allow eighth-graders to get a head start on high school by earning high school credit. Students at Alliance Middle School have plenty of opportunities for social interaction, as the faculty and staff recognize this as an important part of students’ growth and development. Aviator pride is evident in the strongly supported athletic programs that start at the middle school level. The Aviators compete against neighboring schools in the Northeast Buckeye Conference.  Alliance Middle School has formed many community partnerships. The After School Navigators program is a joint effort with Synergy Alliance and is a collaboration with the University of Mount Union, the Alliance YMCA and the Alliance YWCA.  Alliance Middle School is also a member of the Care Team Network that exists to provide for not just the academic, but also the home and family needs of our students. 

 Elementary Schools Northside, Parkway and Rockhill elementary schools house students in grades one through five. The elementary schools are hubs of educational and social activities that engage students in the learning process. Special interactive teams, assisted by child and adolescent professionals, are an active

Marlington Local Schools — Home of the Dukes

Marlington Local School District serves three townships in eastern Stark County: Marlboro, Lexington and Washington. The district name was derived from the combination of the three townships that make up the district. Each of the townships has an elementary school and then students share a middle and high school campus, which is centrally located on Moulin Avenue. In 2007, the district hired former high school principal Jim Nicodemo as superintendent. Nicodemo’s goals for the district are to achieve academic success of students, improve school and community relations and maintain fiscal responsibility to the taxpayers of the district. The district first received the Ohio Department of Education’s excellent rating on its report card for the 2006-2007 school year and has continued earning an excellent rating for five straight years.  In order to receive an excellent rating, Marlington had to meet 25 out of 26 state indicators or have a performance index score of
