Massillon has undergone major changes in the 20th century, many spurred on by hopes for new business and residential life in the downtown. Several plans for the 1960s-1990s are displayed here. From 1939-1951 Massillon focused on the Flood Control Project through the Massillon Conservancy District. With major flooding in 1904, 1913, and 1935, Massillon was threatened with damage to buildings and its people by spring flooding each year. In the 1930s, the city undertook the rerouting of the Tuscarawas River and the building of 3 viaducts: Lincoln Way, Cherry Street, and Tremont Ave.
