Welcome to the Trumbull Memory Project, an online archive of photographs, postcards, illustrations and documents celebrating the history of Trumbull County, Ohio. Trumbull Memory Project documents the history of Warren and Trumbull County, its industries, schools, landmarks and people from the Civil War period to the present.
The materials used on this site are taken from collections donated to the Local History & Genealogy Center of the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library. Trumbull Memory is administered by cooperative efforts of the Center and of the Information Technology Department of the library. We are committed to preserving the community’s images and words and expanding public access to our collections.
If you have photographs or other historical items which you think might be of interest, and which you'd be willing to either donate or lend to the library for digitizing, then we'd love to hear from you. We can be reached at (330) 399-8807, ext. 202.
The Trumbull Memory Project now contains the Tornado Memory Program!
On May 31, 1985, a series of tornadoes hit Northeastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania, leaving behind a wide path of death and devastation. Homes and businesses were destroyed and it was many years before recovery efforts were completed.
The Local History and Genealogy Center of the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library has started a collection of photographs, newspaper articles and reminiscences from those who experienced the disaster. Our goal is to create a centralized collection of information relating to the tornado, so that future generations will have access to the events of that night more than 20 years ago, and the courage and community that arose in the hours, days and weeks following.
See photographs and personal narratives from our collection at the Tornado Memory Project page of the Trumbull Memory Project. This is an open collection and we are actively seeking to add to it. Call us at (330) 399-8807, ext. 202 to add your memories.
