CHURCHES, PARK DOMINATE CAMPBELL, OHIO
Campbell Ohio – (Karen Kastner)
Once known as “East Youngstown,” Campbell, Ohio, is replete with ornate churches, new school buildings and safe neighborhoods for families
. Perhaps the gem of the community is Roosevelt Park, which boasts five pavilions and many baseball fields and paths for joggers, walkers and bicyclists.
Now named for a titan of the steel industry that used to thrive here, the city boasts numerous major employers as well as small stores and businesses and neighborhood restaurants and bars easily accessible to many sections of town on foot. Many serve delectable ethnic foods in this diverse community.
