John Struthers, from Washington County, Pennsylvania, purchased of Poland Township land in 1798 and gave it the name Marbletown. John Struthers owned this land until the War of 1812 came around when he and his family suffered financial ruin. This immense amount of land would lay dormant until 1865 when it would be repurchased by Thomas Struthers. Thomas bought this land to honor his father, he was instrumental in bringing industry and railroads to the town. Eventually, the town would have its name changed to Struthers by popular vote.[1]

In 1943, a Jehovah's Witnesses was fined by the city for distributing religious pamphlets door-to-door. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that this was a violation of the First Amendment in Martin v. Struthers.
