Leetonia Beehive Coke Ovens Park

Leetonia Beehive Coke Ovens Park

The Village of Leetonia was founded in 1866 and incorporated in 1869 as a company town associated with the Leetonia Iron and Coal Company. The company constructed a complex of 205 beehive coke ovens, used for purifying coal. The company closed in 1930, but the ovens remain. The site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. We are currently developing local and regional tourism initiatives that will have a positive impact on the Northern Appalachian Coal Region of Ohio, and utilizing newly developed models which can be used to develop any rural area.
