<p>Samuel Bachtel laid out the community of New Berlin in February 1831. The small village was located in Plain Township, Stark County. Many of the early settlers of New Berlin were Germans. The original plan included twenty-three lots. </p>
<p>New Berlin remained small in the nineteenth century. By the mid-1840s, there were 221 residents. Many of the town's citizens were involved in agriculture in the area surrounding the community. In 1901, the town began to be more closely linked to other communities in the area, especially as a result of the construction of the interurban railroad line between Canton and Akron. The line ran down Main Street in New Berlin.</p>
