Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America

The Smithsonian Institution has produced an exceptional, interactive exhibit that we are excited to offer during this Holiday Season, brought to Abita Springs by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities and with the support of the National Endowment for the Arts.

As a Museum on Main Street exhibit, Hometown Teams captures the stories that unfold on the neighborhood fields and courts, and the underdog heroics, larger-than-life legends, fierce rivalries, and gut wrenching defeats.

 In the above photos, that's a proud Coach Bryan Gowland at lower right with his team that no other scored against during the entire football season.
