On June 8 we are hosting our spring open house at the Youngstown Steel Heritage Museum from 10 am until 4 pm. The YSHM is a volunteer run effort to preserve Youngstown’s steelmaking history and heritage, and over the past two decades we have amassed a significant collection of Youngstown significant steelmaking equipment, technology and artifacts. The Mahoning Valley was at one time one of the largest iron and steel producing centers in the United States and played an extremely important role in the development of the country. As the Mahoning Valley once again starts to flex its manufacturing muscle especially in the oil and gas industries, it is important to remember that this is just the latest chapter in the Valley’s century long dominance in the production of Oil Country Tubular Goods. One of the key missions of the YSHM is to educate the public about the role the Valley has played in this industry and the role that we will play into the future.
Charles Hughes, noted artist blacksmith and proprietor of C&C Iron Works will be on hand demonstrating his craft. Current and former steelworkers and YSHM volunteers will also be on site discussing the project and the importance of preserving our valley’s industrial legacy. We will also be announcing the construction of the Youngstown Steel Memorial to honor the tens of thousands of people who have worked in the iron and steel industries from 1803 to the current day.
So please make plans to come out to the Youngstown Steel Heritage Museum on Saturday, June 8! We look forward to seeing you there!
