NJCH was pleased to host Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape Americain 2014. The exhibit visited six locations across the state.  In addition to housing this exhibit exploring American sports culture, each site host ran programs, events, and/or contents with a sports theme.  Communities partnered together to tell their own local stories as the Smithsonian came to town.  In addition, NJCH hosted two workshops for teachers, looking at how the subject of sports can be taught in our New Jersey classrooms.
