Gift shop offers titles with local ties


Salem Historical Society’s gift shop, 239 S. Lundy Ave., has new titles that have been recently made available. Some are: “Lost Youngstown” regarding the loss of the many industries over the years.

For those interested in ghostly stories, “The Ohio State Reformatory” and “Murder & Mayhem on Ohio’s Rails” are in stock. Because of the connection with Alan Freed, a Salem resident and leader in the rock ’n’ roll era, “Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Roots” is on the shelves.

The shop is open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday 9 a.m. to noon. For information, call 330-337-8514.
