The Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor, known locally as the “Steel Museum”, collects and preserves the history of the rise and fall of the steel industry in Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley. The Museum’s exhibits combine artifacts, interviews, and full-scale recreations of the places where steelworkers lived and worked. The YHCIL is also an archive, library, and learning center that caters to visitors interested in learning about the various industries, ethnic identities, and workforce that shaped Youngstown into one of the top five American steel producers in the mid-20th century. It is currently managed locally by the History program at Youngstown State University, in partnership with the Ohio History Connection.
