   The museum’s hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays thru Saturdays. The Daily fee to view this exhibit and the entire museum is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and $3 for children and students with identification. Admission is free for Youngstown State University students. The exhibit runs throughout the summer.
   The museum is owned by the Ohio Historical Society and operated by the Youngstown State University’s department of history. It is located at 151 W. Wood Street in Youngstown.
   Sincere thanks to the many Warren employees who volunteered to be interviewed for the historical research by the Youngstown State students. Your input was critical to the students and to the exhibit.
