Arms Family Museum

Greystone, the magnificent Arts & Crafts style residence of Olive A. and Wilford P. Arms is preserved a century later as The Arms Family Museum of Local History. On the first floor, in original period rooms, experience the Arms’ love of handicraft, medieval architecture and design, and the natural environment.

The Story of My House by Olive F.A. Arms

The lower level and second floor feature dynamic exhibits that explore the history of all the people who have lived in the Mahoning Valley.

 Artifacts displayed and interpreted in changing galleries help the visitor understand the way of life in the Mahoning Valley for different people at different times, whether Native American, pioneer settler, Welsh coal miner, African-American freeman, or Eastern European immigrant.

    • After two minor fixes are completed (we have contractors working now) we will reopen to the public. I don’t have an exact date yet – but it should be soon.

  4. I heard about your upcoming exhibit for Kotheimer Dance Studio and had a question. My mother, who is 85, was at the school for many years. We live in Portland,OR. Will you have any of the exhibit online so we can see it from here? Thank you!

    • Hopefully – once the exhibit closes in the museum, it’s possible that it will become an online exhibit.
