(WYT-91: dp. 328; 1. 110'; dr. 11'; s. 8 k.; cl. 110,B)

Built by Gulfport Works, Port Arthur, Tex. as a medium harbor tug with steel strengthened hull for icebreakiug, Mahoning was launched 22 July 1939.

Assigned to the 3d Coast Guard District at New York City, she operated In and about New York Harbor. Executive Order 8929 of 1 November 1941 transferred the entire Coast Guard to the Navy. Mahoning continued operations in New York Harbor as part of the naval forces until 1 January 1946. Executive Order 9666 of 28 December 1945 returned her to the Coast Guard.

New York City remained her permanent headquarters throughout the post-World War 11 years. In 1966 she was redesignated WYTM-91, and she has continued to operate as a tug in New York Harbor into 1969.

Mahoning WYT-91 - History

Harry B. Burt (1874-1926) came to Youngstown in 1893 and began making and selling penny candy. He expanded his business with high quality candies, chocolates and ice cream. Around 1920 Burt invented a process for freezing a wood stick in an ice cream bar and coating it in smooth chocolate so it could be made and eaten without being touched. He called his new confection “Good Humor Ice Cream Suckers. Burt purchased the building at 325 West Federal Street in 1921, and underwent an extensive remodeling project. The new Burt’s Confectionary opened to the public on April 4, 1922 amid great fanfare in the local daily newspaper The Youngstown Vindicator . The facility included a chocolate and hard candy factory, kitchen and bakery, banquet room, large dance hall, dining rooms, a retail store for his products and an ice cream factory. With the latter Burt could mass-produce Good Humor suckers and provide enough inventory for his new distribution method—selling ice cream on the streets in Youngstown-area neighborhoods from a fleet of freezer trucks with bell-ringing, white-uniform-clad drivers.

For the opening Burt published a souvenir booklet, a copy of which is in the archives collection. Portions of the booklet were reproduced in Historical Happenings from July of 2008 to February of 2009.

In 2008 the Mahoning Valley Historical Society purchased the building and is in the process of renovating it into the Tyler Mahoning Valley History Center. The new History Center will be designed to make as much of the Harry Burt/Ross Radio Building accessible to the public as is possible. In fact it will be a multi-purpose community center with a local history theme. The basement level will house the Historical Society’s archival library storage and public research rooms. The first floor will include gathering spaces, a museum store, and large and small exhibit galleries. The original second floor ballroom will be restored and available for Historical Society events, public rentals, and traveling exhibit installations. The third floor will include an education classroom, media room, multi-purpose exhibit and event gallery, office and meeting space.

Progress on renovations is 75% complete. Highlights of the project include the reinstallation of four skylights, restoration of the historic ballroom and preparations in the basement level for compact shelving.

The Campaign for the Tyler Mahoning Valley History Center has raised $4.6 million of the $6 million goal.

Does this sound appealing to you?

We warmly invite you to visit and join Mahoning Valley Civil War Round Table here in Ohio! We’re a friendly group with about one hundred fifty members, seeking to better understand the history and efforts of the American Civil War.

About Us

Expecting only a handful of people, the organizers of the Mahoning Valley Civil War Round Table’s first meeting reserved the backroom of a Howard Johnson’s restaurant in Boardman, Ohio. To their amazement, between 65 and 70 people showed up.

Sometime in the early 1980s, Hugh Earnhart of Poland, Ohio, a professor of History at Youngstown State University Tom Kirker of New Castle, Pennsylvania, a graduate History student at YSU and Byron Hartzell, who had recently returned to the Youngstown, Ohio, area from Texas all had their own ideas about starting groups that would meet regularly to discuss the significant military and political events in American history from the period 1861–1865. At an informal get-together over pizza and beer, they decided that forming one club would encourage history buffs from all around the Mahoning Valley to join them.

Seeing the success of that first round table meeting, where Hugh Earnhart spoke about Abraham Lincoln, they knew they needed a larger venue, so they moved to the student center at Youngstown State. After meeting monthly at YSU for the next two or three years, they out-grew that facility and marched back to Boardman, choosing the spacious Antone’s Banquet Centre. Finally, in early 2017, the group found its current home a few miles to the west at A La Cart Catering in Canfield.

Through those years, the MVCWRT has enjoyed the company of many high-quality local, regional, and national speakers, including Ed Bearss, Chief Historian Emeritus with the National Park Service former Executive Director of Pamplin Historical Park and the National Museum of the Civil War Soldier, A. Wilson Greene and scores others. Ed and Will have since been named honorary members.

The MVCWRT have also spent dozens of hours volunteering throughout the years on the Gettysburg battlefield, cleaning brush and debris from around several monuments as part of the Adopt-a-Position at Gettysburg National Military Park, as well as building trails at Cedar Creek & Belle Grove National Historical Park. For the past ten years we have donated raised funds to over twenty different historic sites and their mission of preservation and interpretation.

In 2006, to honor Hugh Earnhart’s work in promoting and growing the MVCWRT, the membership collected money to donate to Pamplin Park to install a bench with a special plaque (which is there to this day) along the Breakthrough Trail where Ohio soldiers fought 141 years earlier. The plaque reads:

“There are tracts of land that have a strong attachment to this war, and they should not be ridden over in a roughshod manner”–Hugh G. Earnhart. From his friends at the Mahoning Valley Civil War Round Table.

Then-Executive Director at Pamplin Park, Will Greene, called it “a really special moment.”

Over its 34 year history, the MVCWRT has had three program directors: Hugh Earnhart, 1984–2004 Gordy Morgan, 2004-2018 and Gary Wholf, 2018-present. The Round Table currently has over 150 active members. New members are always welcome!

Mission & History

YWCA Mahoning Valley is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, dignity, and freedom for all.

We proudly serve the women and families of Mahoning and Trumbull Counties with housing, youth development, childcare, advocacy, and empowerment programs that meet the dynamic, changing needs our our community.

Our History

YWCA Mahoning Valley was formed in 2018, the result of the merger of YWCA Warren and YWCA Youngstown. Our merger allows us to bring a combined 215 years of experience and expertise to doing what we do best: empowering women.

Ground is broken by Mrs. Ella Phelps in 1928 for the YWCA building in Warren.

YWCA Warren was founded in 1916, but plans for the organization go back as far as 1912. In 1929, YWCA Warren opened its building at 375 North Park Avenue, housing travelers, serving hot meals to downtown workers, offering education to newly arrived immigrants, and providing opportunities for social, spiritual, and personal enrichment to young women. Over the course of a century, YWCA Warren became a hub for women and girls, ever-evolving to meet their needs. Today, the YWCA building on North Park is home to YWCA’s Warren offices and is shared by SCOPE, another Trumbull County social service agency serving older adults.

YWCA women organized a membership drive in Youngstown to recruit young women in 1921.

YWCA Youngstown was organized in 1903 and formally founded in 1904. In 1912, the historic building which still houses YWCA’s administrative offices was completed, providing a space for housing for young women and travelers. YWCA activities grew and flourished over the coming decades, with the YWCA taking on such important work as educating newly enfranchished voters, providing sex education to families, and offering support to the large immigrant populations arriving in Youngstown. YWCA today is an integral part of the landscape between downtown and Youngstown State University’s campus to the north.

About Us

    The Mahoning Country Club was founded in the early 1920's and remained a private club until 1972. The Club hosted the 1942 and 1943 Mahoning Valley Open which included players such as Ben Hogan, Gene Sarezan, and Bing Crosby. Nine of the original holes remain in play today.

    Most changes to the course occurred in the 1950's after John Ezzo purchased the property in 1943. The latest changes to the course occurred in 1998 in which two new holes were opened. The current building was built in 1967 after a fire destroyed the original clubhouse. The exterior of the banquet hall was completely renovated in 2007.

Youngstown Sheet and Tube Bulletin
The Youngstown Sheet and Tube Bulletin collection covers August 1919 through 1977.
The Youngstown Sheet and Tube Bulletin was a monthly employee newsletter published by the company, beginning August 1919, and continuing through 1977. Issues included gossip and social news, along with photographs of babies, engagements, vacations and employee sporting events, departmental news, articles on safety in the plant and explanations of the various mill operations.

Company housing, provided through the Buckeye Land Company, a YS&T subsidiary, was advertised in the Bulletin beginning in the 1920s. By the 1950s the content had shifted away from the employee focus, to become increasingly more company and management oriented.

New! In Search of Mahoning County’s “Gretna Green”

When a couple seeks to marry where there are fewer marriage restrictions, the journey’s destination is often called a “Gretna Green,” which is the name of the original Scottish border town where 18th century English couples found a haven. For Ohioans, West Virginia has long been the jurisdiction for so-called “runaway marriages.” New Cumberland, the county seat of the northern-most Hancock County, was a convenient location for Youngstown residents.

So, if you are unable to find a marriage record in Mahoning County’s Probate Court, then search online for digital records of West Virginia Vital Statistics. Provided by the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History, this database offers birth, death and marriage records for most West Virginia counties over many years. Hancock County alone enjoys marriage records from 1854 – 1873, and then from 1880 – 1971. Congratulations and Best Wishes!

Genealogy Center Policies

The Library provides assistance with genealogy research. Librarians assist customers in the use of basic genealogical sources such as local files and print materials, indexes, databases, etc. Searching of the catalog, online sources, local biographical sources and indexes to the major local histories will be done by staff as time permits. Customers who require materials not available in the library’s collection or databases may be referred to the genealogy and local history librarian, local genealogical organizations and researchers.

Renting Microfilm

Please Note: On September 1, 2017, FamilySearch discontinued its microfilm distribution services. The change is the result of significant progress in FamilySearch’s microfilm digitization efforts. Digital imaging has made it easier to find ancestors through the internet, mobile, and other technologies. Researchers are directed to to establish a personal username and password account for access to online digitized microfilm.

For patrons who call, write or email us, we are able to check the following sources:

* Henry R. Baldwin Records, an index of Northeastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania cemetery inscriptions dated 1867-1918. (We will check the name indexes.)
* Indexes of local history books.
* Youngstown City Directories from 1869 to the present. (We will check three volumes per request.)
* Youngstown Telephone Directories from 1915 to the present. (We will check three volumes per request.)
* Youngstown Vindicator indexes: 1869-1919 (incomplete) 1921-1930 1933-1938 2001-present.
* Obituary and birth announcement research is limited for pre-1920 newspapers. Searching the microfilm for these items before 1920 involves time-consuming research outside the parameters of our service policy unless an indexing source can be used. We set a limit of five obituaries, death notices or birth announcements per request, and we will check no more than five days from a known birth or death date, unless circumstances related to the events direct otherwise.

Volunteers (Temporarily Suspended)
Volunteers from the Ohio Genealogical Society, Mahoning Chapter are available on Thursday afternoons from 1-4 p.m. in the Genealogy and Local History Center at Main Library. Patrons requiring more extensive research, advice, or instruction may be referred to the genealogy and local history librarian or to local genealogical organizations and researchers.

Genealogy FAQ

Will the library find all the members of my extended family?

No, we can assist you in locating sources and advise you what type of records to search, but you must do your own work or hire a genealogist.

When I request that information be sent by mail or email, is there a charge for copies of obituaries and other newspaper articles, city directory pages, etc.?

There is $1.00 per image fee for a printed copy mailed to your home, but there is no charge for images scanned and sent by e-mail. Please note: Advance payment is not required for printed images. An invoice will be sent along with the requested information and should be returned with your payment. We cannot return advance payments or self-addressed stamped envelopes in the event that information is not found, so please wait for the results of your search and the total amount due before sending payment.

Is self-service printing and scanning from microform available?

Yes! Self-serve printing and scanning stations for microfilm and microfiche are available in the Genealogy and Local History Center at the Struthers Library (temporary location). You can capture scanned images from microfilm and microfiche and secure the information by sending it to the printer or by saving it to your flash drive. And yes, you can even email the images to yourself! There is no fee for self-service scanning. Print fees of .10 per 8 1/2 x 11 page or .25 per 11 x 17 page still apply should you wish to produce a paper copy of what you scanned.

If you do not wish to make digital images by scanning, you can still produce paper copies at .10 per page by using the standard equipment.

Is scanning of books and documents available?

Yes! At this time we do offer a flatbed scanner in the Genealogy and Local History Center at the Struthers Library (temporary location). Please see a staff member.
