Lockland is a village in southwest Ohio. Located in Hamilton County, Lockland has a population of approximately 3,700 in a 1.2 square mile area. Located along Interstate Route 75, Lockland is just north of Cincinnati. Among Lockland's top employers are Able Tool Corporation, Evonik Degussa Corporation, and Mueller Roofing, founded in 1875 as John Mueller Company.
Lockland was founded in 1828, and centered around a series of locks on the Miami-Erie Canal. The canal contributed to the growth of the village, which was officially incorporated in 1849. A fifteen-foot drop in elevation along the locks allowed for substantial water power for gristmills and sawmills. Lumber, paper and flour were among Lockland's early industries. An 1894 history lists six paper mills in operation, including Haldeman Paper Company and J.H. Tangeman. The Fox Paper Company, established around the 1880s, operated until 1988. The Haldeman Paper Company was taken over by Richardson Paper Company in 1906, which operated the plant until the mid-1950s. In 1880, the Stearns and Foster mattress company moved to Lockland, producing mattresses and other textile products. At one time, the company was the largest consumer of cotton in the country. In the 1980s, operating as Stearns Technical Textile Company, they began producing specialty textiles and insulation products. Although a number of companies prominent in the 20th century have also left Lockland, including Philip Carey and Celotex, some manufacturing remains and some service-oriented and high-tech companies have been introduced.
Lockland has a history of substantial manufacturing concentrated in a relatively small area, making asbestos exposure a concern for workers and their loved ones.
