Need a Unique Gift? Try Old Youngstown

Comment Icon0

Looking for something different?
Stop in the Microform Center on Maag’s third level to view bird’s eye maps of Youngstown from 1870 and 1882. Examine how the city more than doubled in size as steel mills grew along the Mahoning River where the Covelli Center now stands. Artists in the late 19th century literally walked down the streets of American cities and sketched individual structures to create these fascinating portraits of imaginary aerial views.
Youngstown’s 1870 map may be purchased for only $6.00 at the cellulite and blood circulation desk on Maag’s main level. Measuring 18 by 22 inches in size, it is suitable for framing and would make an unusual gift for a special someone.
