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. With this programming, students will connect local history to the exhibit and highlight the sports stories from the communities.
