    The Ceramics museum is housed in the old city post office.. Our tour began with a viewing of a 35-minute film presentation on the history of East Liverpool and the pottery industry. The film explained the differences in the manufacture of pottery from primitive yellow ware on through the more automated and refined products to the point when they were producing Lotus Ware..

    After that we walked around the museum for about an hour and looked at photographs, pottery examples that the film had explained to us and the life-size dioramas. (as in the photo) . Other dioramas depicted the jigger shop, kiln and decorating shops.

    The museum webpage says that ceramic manufacturing was more important in East Liverpool during the late-nineteenth century than is steel production in Pittsburgh or automobile manufacturing in Detroit today.

    CLOSED Monday and Tuesday

    Open 9:30 - 5 Weds to Sat.

    While there are several ways to get TO East Liverpool (it is on the rail line, and the river in addition to being near to an airport), I can find no public transportation in the town at all. Other than two taxi cab companies (Tri State and Ace which is pictured), and a limo service, you have to have a car to get around town.

    Carnegie Library 1 more image

    Oberlin Ohio where I went to school has or had a Carnegie Library. It isn't the only one. There are111 libraries which were given to Ohioans by the steel king and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie during the years 1898 to 1918.

    This is the Carnegie Public Library in East Liverpool. I did not know what it was, although I thought it looked important. Beaver70 very kindly emailed me, "The building that you wondered about is (or was) the Carnegie Public Library. Spent many hours there growing up."

    When I knew the name of it, I could find out about it. Their website says:

    "The East Liverpool Carnegie Library at 219 E. 4th Street, East Liverpool, Ohio was erected on the Bradshaw Farm property, 199 E. 4th Street, East Liverpool...In 1899 two local businessmen contacted Andrew Carnegie concerning the possibility of a donation to the City of East Liverpool, in order to build a public library. Andrew Carnegie, by now a wealthy businessman and philanthropist, had spent much of his youth in East Liverpool with relatives. Construction of the building began in 1899 after a visit from Carnegie to the city. Designed by A. W. Scott of East Liverpool and constructed by Harvey McHenry the exterior of the building was complete in 1900. The Library was officially opened and dedicated on May 8, 1902.

    "Located opposite the East Liverpool High School.. the library steps were frequently the site for High School photographs. . the exterior of the building has remained predominantly the same as in 1900. ..In a world of growing costs the Library has maintained a policy of affordability and accessibility to the public of the East Liverpool and Tri-State area. Today it is cheaper to use the library than it was in 1962.."

    This place was totally unexpected - I had never heard about it before. We didn't go in because we were in quest of lunch. I have found no reference to it in any travel literature but they do have a website.

    It says: "Founded Feb. 13, 1998

    "The Lou Holtz/Upper Ohio Valley Hall of Fame was established to showcase individuals and communities throughout the region stretching from Western Beaver County in Pennsylvania to Wheeling, W.Va., for their outstanding contributions in commerce, medicine, politics, sports, entertainment and community enrichment."

    HOURS:
    Monday through Friday EST., 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
    Saturday EST. 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    Favorite thing: The banners on the light standards proclaim that this is "America's Hometown". But there are many places that claim this honor (Charles City, Iowa; Cordell, Oklahoma; Muncie, Indiana; and Hannibel, Missouri among others)- East Liverpool is not the only one.

    Except for the banners, the only reference I find to the title is on the web page of the Ohio Valley College of Technology which says

    "Welcome to one of America's best technology schools located in America's "home town", East Liverpool Ohio.

    "The Ohio Valley College of Technology was founded 1886 in East Liverpool, Ohio by John Sant.

    "The mission of the college is to allow our students to grow personally and professionally so the student is highly employable after graduation. In pursuit of educational objectives, a solid base of academic preparation and practical training is provided. Ohio Valley College of Technology recognizes and respects the rights and the goals of each student and the College strives to meet the needs of each student.

    "The goals of OVCT are a reflection of its history combined with the reality of today's changing trends and technologies. In this mode, students are provided with up-to-date skills and training to meet today's challenging needs in business, industry and government."
