After celebrating the centennial of the Good Humor Bar last year, Mahoning Valley Historical Society launches the 100th anniversary celebration of the opening of Harry Burt’s flagship facility—his ice cream and candy factory, retail store, restaurant and dance hall—which is now Tyler History Center, where Good Humor Bars were first mass-produced. This walking tour will also share the history of other occupants of the landmark structure, including its own story of acquisition and renovation. Finally, other downtown sites on the tour will help to highlight Mahoning County’s 175th anniversary.
