On exhibit at the White River Valley Museum May 4 – June 16, 2019
Hometown Teams has been made possible by the Smithsonian, Humanities Washington, and City of Auburn Parks, Arts and Recreation.

It's time to root, root, root for the home team! This family friendly and interactive exhibit has made it all the way from the Smithsonian to Auburn's White River Valley Museum. Hometown Teams has something for every fan, no matter your favorite sport. Climb on bleachers and pose with the peanut man, peak though a stereoscope to view America's great stadiums, and sit back and listen to stories of glory and defeat.  Alongside national stories are those that reflect on a rich and diverse history of sports in the area like: the ferocious football rivalry between Auburn High School and Kent-Meridian High School, the little known stories of historic Japanese sports teams, and Auburn's amazing specialized recreation program.
