This summer, the Ohio History Center is changing some of its collections on exhibit in 1950s:Living the American Dream. We are featuring objects that tell the story of popular culture during the 1950s including toys from the Roy Rodgers show, a jukebox, and comic books.

We are looking for objects that relate to music, television, movies, comic books, and other popular culture during the 1950s. If you are interesting in donating something to the Ohio History Connection, send an email with your name, contact information, and a short description of the objects to collections@ohiohistory.org or call us at 614-297-2535.
