The city was a manufacturing and railroad hub for much of the 20th century and is also associated with the state flower of Ohio, the scarlet carnation, and is known as "The Carnation City". The University of Mount Union, a private liberal arts college established in 1846, is located in Alliance.Most of the city is part of the Canton–Massillon, OH Metropolitan Statistical Area, while the small portion of the city in Mahoning County is within 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".Plan your visit to Alliance and other destinations in United States using our United States online tour itinerary maker.
