Description: The Mahoning Valley Historical Society will offer a “Bits and Bites of History” lunch program that will include a historical presentation on the third Thursday of every month at noon at the Tyler Mahoning Valley History Center, 325 W. Federal St. The free lunchtime discussions will cover a variety of topics and give participants a chance to explore local history in a new way. Rick Shale, author of “Idora Park: The Last Ride of Summer” will explore the history of Idora Park on July 17, discussing why the park was created, why it was built on Youngstown’s south side, and the secrets behind its name, spanning from its opening in May 1899 to closing in 1984. An Aug. 21 event will be “Dining on the Town” with Tom Welsh, author of “Classic Restaurants of Youngstown.” Guests will learn about the city’s restaurant industry, moving from 1945 to the present, beginning with a description of postwar downtown Youngstown, including the Mural Room, Raver’s, the Italian Restaurant, and Jay’s Lunch. Welsh will describe the manner in which trends contributed to the decline of the city’s restaurant industry, but he will also call attention to establishments that have served as symbols of continuity in changing neighborhoods. The presentation will feature rare images of classic dining spots, many of which are stored in the MVHS permanent collection. Rick Rowlands, executive director of the Youngstown Steel Heritage Museum, will present “1914-2014: A Century of Steelmaking in Brier Hill” on Sept. 18. From the discovery of coal at the Tod Estate in the 1840s through the heyday of Youngstown Sheet and Tube’s Brier Hill Works, and the construction of Vallourec Star’s mini mill, Brier Hill has played an important part in America’s steel industry. The history of iron and steelmaking in Brier Hill will be explored, and Rowlands will discuss how Vallourec’s new investments are merely a continuation of the valley’s dominance in the Oil Country Tubular Goods market over the past century. “The Pivotal Right, A History of the Women’s Suffrage Movement” will be presented by Traci Manning, MVHS curator of education, on Oct. 16. The brave and outspoken women who fought to gain voting rights in the 19th and early 20th centuries will be celebrated. The struggle, persecution, and prosecution of these women will be set against the backdrop of national history and the greater Civil Rights movement. Daily parking is available for all of the events for $2 in the lot on the west side of the History Center. Overture Restaurant at the DeYor Performing Arts Center, 260 Federal Plaza W, will offering $6 Bites & Bits lunch special in conjunction with all of the events. Call 330-744-9900 to place an order.
