Event Description

A traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street program coming to Mount Vernon in March and April 2018 on the first of a six-stop Iowa tour celebrates these local sport heroes within the larger context of the many roles athletics play in towns, cities, and states across the country.

Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG) in partnership with the Iowa Economic Development Authority’s Main Street Iowa program will celebrate this connection when it brings “Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America,”  to Mount Vernon from March 18 to April 29, 2018. “Hometown Teams,” which will be complemented by exhibits featuring local legacies, examines how and why hometown sports are more than just games.
