History Center Exhibits

Don’t miss this opportunity to view a large selection of radios from the world’s largest collection of Arvin radios! Not only will it bring back memories of your first transistor radio, you’ll learn about how Arvin Industries assisted with manufacturing items for World War II. The collection also includes original marketing materials, display cases, and posters of products. Many of the items still have their original boxes!

This wonderful collection was donated to The Historical Society by Larry Ruble, who has almost 500 radios in his significant collection. We can’t thank him enough for sharing Arvin history with our community and visitors to the museum.

The Historical Society also features rotating exhibits of items from our extensive collection.
