30 Fascinating Photos Capture Street Scenes of Massillon, Ohio in the 1960s

Massillon is a city in Stark County in the U.S. state of Ohio, approximately 8 miles (13 km) west of Canton, 20 miles (32 km) south of Akron, and 50 miles (80 km) south of Cleveland. It is the second largest incorporated area within the Canton–Massillon metropolitan area, which includes all of Stark and Carroll counties.

The city’s incorporated area primarily resides in the western half of Perry Township, with portions extending north into Jackson Township, west into Tuscarawas Township, and south into Bethlehem Township. The village of Navarre borders the city to the south.

These fascinating photos from Massillon Museum were taken by Jack Worthington (1921-2009) that show street scenes of Massillon, Ohio in the 1960s.
