“Back to Greystone” – Mahoning Valley Historical Society’s 13th Memories of Christmas Past

Mahoning Valley Historical Society returns a beloved holiday season tradition to Arms Family Museum. Memories of Christmas Past will run from November 20 through December 31.

“Back to Greystone,” is an in-person museum experience, portraying festive décor and traditions from the 1900s to the 1930s, inspired by how Olive F. A. Arms might have dressed and decorated her home in that era. The exhibit will blend Mrs. Arms’ love of nature—flowers and birds in particular—with her distinct approach to welcoming guests into her home.

Memories of Christmas Past will include two on-site gifts shops featuring traditional and vintage items to add to your home in preparation for the holiday season.
