YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Mahoning Valley Historical Society has one of the richest collections of broadcasting equipment and memorabilia in the country. That part of our local history is now more accessible.
The Business and Media Archives Collection has moved to the Carriage House behind the Arms Family Museum on Wick Avenue.
Historical Society Director Bill Lawson says the new space allows greater public access to the collection which includes a research room, exhibit space, and viewing stations. Lawson says, “We are very excited about having this collection on this site and making it available to the public to learn about broadcast history.”
The public is invited to attend a free open house at the Carriage House this Saturday from noon to four. WKBN has donated extensively to this collection.
