Exhibitions on three floors in an historic mansion cover such wide-ranging subjects as basketball, wrestling, swimming, bowling, and even billiards. They're open from noon to 4 PM, Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is free and donations are gratefully accepted. The hall is located at 1414 Market Ave. N. To get there from I-77, take US 62 east for one and a half miles, exit at Market Avenue and go south for one mile.
