Presentation to the Canfield Historical Society

The rich history of the Niles & New Lisbon Railroad is woven into the towns and villages it served.  Canfield, located at the center of Mahoning County, was an important station on the Niles & New Lisbon Railroad.  This presentation, originally given to the Canfield Historical Society on May 12, 2022, tells the story of the Niles & New Lisbon Railroad from the perspective of that community.  Additional N&NL research materials are available at that Society‚Äôs Canfield office.
