The Mahoning Valley Historical Society is unveiling a new exhibit Friday.

The new exhibit, "Tod Family Treasures: 19th Century Heirlooms", features decorative arts including family portraits, silver, china and more.

The Tod family built a prosperous future in the Mahoning Valley after arriving from Connecticut in 1800.

George Tod was the first lawyer to settle in Youngstown and served as Trumbull County's first prosecutor and the first Youngstown Township clerk.

His son David Tod was also a lawyer and held public office as Ohio's Civil War general and U.S. Ambassador to Brazil.

Also featured in the exhibit are artifacts that were gifted to David Tod during his time as ambassador and a Tod family bedroom suite purchased somewhere near the 1880s.

The Arms Family Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
