Sharon, Pennsylvania, USA

Sharon was settled in 1795, incorporated as a borough on October 6, 1841, and incorporated as a city on December 17, 1918. The city operated under the Pennsylvania third-class city code until 2008, at which point it adopted a home rule charter under which the elected position of mayor was replaced with a hired city manager and financial officer.

Initially a center of coal mining, Sharon's economy transitioned to ironmaking and steelmaking and other heavy industry following the beginning with the arrival of the Erie Extension Canal in the 1840s.
