Hometown Teams:
How Sports Shape America

With funding from Humanities Washington, The Smithsonian has come to Grays Harbor now through August 2. Among eight state museums hosting this new traveling exhibit, The Polson has learned we can extend our closing date until then. We are pleased to announce "Hometown Teams" will be open to visitors again on July 1. Be vigilant. Be safe. We're looking forward to seeing you.

 Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America

Hometown Teams is what is called a "Museum on
Main Street" (MoMS) exhibition. With brightly colored, informative display kiosks it is organized around serveral key themes.

  • More Than a Game
  • Fields of Glory
  • Take Me Out to the Ballgame
  • Playing the Game
  • Root, Root, Root for the Home Team
  • Sports Revolution!

Also featured are some true gems from our Polson collection, including photographs, vintage sports equipment, posters, fan paraphernalia and more. A team of local historians including Rick Anderson, George Donovan, Corky Hathaway, Tom Quigg, Larry Jones, and Gary Patterson have developed a 300+ list of the Harbor's greatest sports figures — athletes, coaches, supporters and broadcasters who have brought Harbor sports alive.

Again, "Hometown Teams" will run through August 2.
