The Massillon Business and Industry Database

Welcome to the Massillon Business and Industry Database. This database is a collection of past and present organizations (businesses, industries, nonprofits, schools, churches, parks and other organized entities) in the Massillon Area and is a product of the Massillon Public Library. It is intended as a resource for anyone interested in Massillon's rich history of development. Use the options to the left of this screen to search by organization name or by person(s) affiliated with the organization. You can also browse the database by organization categories.

Data Collection
Information about the organizations in this database was obtained from historical Massillon city directories and the Massillon Business and Industry clippings files. These resources are maintained by the Massillon Public Library's reference department. Learn more about how we collected information about these organizations.
