Muhlenberg County Welcomes Smithsonian’s Hometown Teams Exhibit
According to MuseumonMainStreet.org, the Smithsonian's Hometown Teams exhibit "examines the many roles that sports play in American society."
This unique exhibit, which highlights local sports history, is put on display at various museums as it makes its way around the country.
Currently, it can be seen in Fernandina Beach, Florida; Sullivan, Missouri; Jefferson, Iowa; and, through September 29th, in Greenville, Kentucky at the Muhlenberg County Public Library's Duncan Center.
The proud sports history of Muhlenberg County will be represented, according to a WBKO/Bowling Green report, in the form of exhibits honoring jockey Sherman Armstrong, a Greenville native, as well as legendary Western Kentucky University basketball coach E.A. Diddle.
His first coaching job was at Greenville High School.
The exhibit also remembers Reggie Warford, the first African-American basketball player to graduate from the University of Kentucky.
Warford played at Drakesboro High School.
This is exciting history about the great sports traditions of Muhlenberg County and the exhibit is not to be missed.
