Spanning Hancock, Seneca and Wood counties, in northeastern Ohio, Fostoria was named for Charles W. Foster, whose son was the 35th governor of Ohio and U.S. Secretary of the Treasury under Benjamin Harrison. In 1854, the villages of Rome and Risdon were united by Charles Foster, forming the community that was named for him. Fostoria's heritage includes the glass heritage and railroading, as five railroads once operated in the city, primarily in order to service its glass industries.
