Local Sports History Comes Alive in Macon County


A quick search of Ebay or trip to a sports expo will quickly show you that there is no shortage of memorabilia for sale from college and professional sports teams. However, memories from high school or minor league teams can often be harder to find. It is the reason the Macon County History Museum has been working to compile history from local sports teams over the past year. 

The museum in Decatur has now unveiled the Macon County Sports History exhibit. It highlights achievements of high school teams as well as of those from the Decatur area who have gone on to play sports professionally. 

The exhibit also includes memorabilia from Millikin University and the Decatur Staleys, who went on to become the Chicago Bears in the 1920s. For more information about this exhibit, you can visit the Macon County History Museum website.
