Seeking County Racing History

During our period of display renovations, we will be expanding the Washington County Racing History Display in the upstairs gallery and would greatly appreciate donations from any time era representing the sport in our county.
Examples of desired items are; photographs or memorabilia from any of the county speedways/raceways; the Salem Speedway, Thunder Valley or the County Fairgrounds track, the American Legion Speedway or the Salem Mud Drag track on Hwy.56.  Also, memorabilia, trophies, equipment, gear, photographs & scrapbooks from any county native racers, in any form of automotive competition.

Any and all donations will be genuinely appreciated and strongly considered for display.  If you have any questions concerning this topic, feel free to contact us, during normal operating hours at (812) 883-6495.
