Experience the story of sports -- the athletes, the coaches, and the fans who cheer them on -- in "Hometown Teams," a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition. Get up close to memorable artifacts and view over 200 photographs highlighting Americans and their love of sports. Get into the game with "Minute for Movement" sports-inspired exercise stations designed to get you moving.

The Kiowa County Historical Society's companion exhibition, "Maverick Nation: Our Hometown Team," focuses on how sports brought the community together after the 2007 EF-5 tornado and how the community has come full circle with one school, the Kiowa County High School, and one mascot, the Mavericks.
