In the Museum Shop

Our Museum Shop is an excellent resource for books on local history and by local authors. Alan Fitzpatrick's White Indians is an example of some little-known facts about the early inhabitants of the upper Ohio Valley. The series of books by Allan Eckert - especially That Dark and Bloody River - also provide insights into our history (and as they are LONG books, serve as great reading for these long evenings). We also stock a great selection of books for young and old on the amazing Lewis & Clark expedition. For something entirely different, Susan Guy's chronicle of the bad old days in Steubenville, Mobsters, Madams and Murder, is a popular read as is Tom Friend's story of Steubenville native and professional baseball player Rich Donnelly, The Chicken Runs at Midnight. Stop in and browse!
