Toronto is the 2nd largest city in Jefferson County, Ohio, United States, along the Ohio River. The population was 5,676 at the 2000 census. It is part of the Weirton–Steubenville, WV-OH Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Toronto is known as the "Gem City", and regularly plays host to the Toronto Community Band and the resident brass ensemble called Gem City Brass.
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. This was taken from the much larger Canadian city of the same name, which civic leader Thomas M. Daniels felt was a place worth emulating.
