Tyler Mahoning Valley History Center

325 West Federal Street Youngstown, OH 44503

Tyler Mahoning Valley History CenterThe Mahoning Valley Historical Society’s new Tyler Mahoning Valley History Center, in a historic landmark building in downtown Youngstown, (naw rearing renovation completion) according to the Historical Society, ” …will be an accessible and inclusive research and learning facility, and complement the Arms Family Museum site.”

The new regional history museum will be housed in the Burt Building on West Federal Street downtown, which is being historically restored. The MVHS purchased the building in 2008 and immediately began the renovation project, which is nearing completion. In the 1920s, the Burt Building, 325 W. Federal St., across from the Western Reserve Transit Authority bus station, housed Burt’s Confectionery Shop. Owner Harry Burt created the famous Good Humor ice-cream bar there.

The Tyler Mahoning Valley History Center  will provide the Youngstown-Warren Metropolitan Area with its only comprehensive regional history and learning facility. The Mahoning Valley Historical Society, established in 1875 and the steward of vast archival collections, has purchased a landmark building to further its mission of preservation, education, and inspiration through heritage. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the landmark is located in downtown Youngstown’s central business district, and its preservation is an investment in urban revitalization. The design for the adaptive reuse and renovation of the structure integrates accessible research and learning facilities with public spaces for community events. The Center will enable the Historical Society to augment its capacity as an educational and cultural resource.
