Today we attended one of the monthly “History With Homeschoolers” programs at the Tyler Mahoning Valley History Center. The Mahoning Valley Historical Society opened the Tyler Center about 3 years ago. It boasts a permanent collection of exhibits and also offers a variety of classes, lectures and other programs relating to local and regional history.
Today, we learned about the steel industry and how it affected the economy of the area. Next month, we will talk about why so many people immigrated here from the turn of the century through the sixties, all due to the steel industry.
