150 Years of Sports in Marion

Exhibit Open thru February 24, 2019

Our museum building was once home to Marion’s first large-scale YMCA, so what better place to present the story of the early days of sports in Marion. This exhibit highlights the 150th year of the YMCA’s history in the area. It will introduce you to some historical sports crazes – like shuffleboard, pedestrianism, bicycling, horseshoes, duck pin bowling and push ball. And will even try to explain our enduring love for football, baseball, basketball, track and other high school athletics.

Opening day admission is free thanks to the McIntyre Foundation of Cedar Rapids.
