Toronto is the second-largest city in Jefferson County, Ohio, United States, along the Ohio River 6 miles northeast of Steubenville. The population was 5,091 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Weirton-Steubenville, WV-OH Metropolitan Statistical Area.
The area was first settled in the 19th century, when it was known as Newburg's Landing. When the railway was built, however, the area's name was changed to Sloanes Station. In 1881, after a vote, the town was incorporated under its present name inspired by the Canadian city of the same name, which civic leader Thomas M. Daniels felt was a place worth emulating.
In the 20th century, the town became a center of heavy industry with a number of large factories in and around the town. In the 1980s and 1990s the city, along with the rest of the region, declined sharply as manufacturing jobs left. Today TIMET, the world's largest supplier of titanium metals, is the major employer in the city.
Toronto is located at 40°27′44″N 80°36′16″W (40.462266, -80.604443), and is about 45 minutes from Pittsburgh.
