Hometown Teams

Through a partnership with Museum on Main Street (MoMS), the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA) presents Hometown Teams, a traveling exhibit. This exhibit will travel to seven host sites in Texas with opportunities for educator workshops and resources to engage local students and teachers with the exhibit.
