Worth a quick trip if you're in the area... Small town USA is the best! Going to donate a few items to the museum soon!

This is very personal museum. Housed within the local Chamber of Coomerce building is this fantastic glimpse into s sports legend. If you are lucky you may even get a tour narrated by a town person who knew "Jimmy".
