Lordstown is a village in Trumbull County, Ohio, United States. It is part of the Youngstown-Warren-Boardman, OH-PA Metropolitan Statistical Area. Lordstown Township, which nearly completely incorporated as the village of Lordstown in 1975 (except for a small section which was then annexed to Warren Township), was one of the original survey townships of the Connecticut Western Reserve: Town 3, Range 4. The township, and subsequently the village, was named for Samuel P. Lord, who laid out the township. The population was 3,417 at the 2010 census.
Lordstown is best known for Lordstown Assembly, a General Motors plant which started production in 1966, and is now the Youngstown-Warren-Boardman MSA's largest industrial employer with approximately 6,500 employees (nearly 3,000 more people work at the plant than live in the village in which it is located). The Chevrolet Cruze is currently manufactured at this facility. Despite its small size, Lordstown continues to grow slowly; people seeking housing in the area are drawn to its rural appearance, abundance of buildable land, and proximity to downtown Warren.
