Trip Planner USA  /  Ohio  /  Alliance
Alliance is a city in Stark and Mahoning counties in the U.S. state of Ohio. The population was 22,322 at the 2010 census. Alliance's nickname is "The Carnation City", and the city is home to the University of Mount Union.The Stark County portion of Alliance is part of the Canton-Massillon, OH Metropolitan Statistical Area, while the small Mahoning County portion is part of the Youngstown-Warren-Boardman, OH-PA Metropolitan Statistical Area.HistoryAlliance was founded in 1854 by the merger of three smaller communities called Williamsport, Freedom, and Liberty . A fourth community, Mount Union, was added in 1888. Alliance was incorporated as a city in 1889.There are two popular theories regarding the origin of the city's name. One holds that it was chosen because of the "alliance" of three small settlements into a larger entity. The other theory says the name reflects the fact that two major railroad lines intersected in Alliance, once known as "The Crossing".Alliance is a town where Main Street was originally laid out to bring traffic to the train station, the heart of the city's transportation hub. The railroads were central to industry and personal transportation, bringing in raw materials for factories and sending out finished goods. Due to this, Alliance is sometimes referred to as "The town where Main Street is a dead end."
