This particular exhibit will focus on home-town teams from the state of Iowa. Memorabilia will include items throughout the decades, and will be from our very own local teams. We’ll also join up with town historian, and tour guide, Joe to get the inside scoop. We can’t wait to hear your hometown team story.
