Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame
The Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame's popular traveling exhibit, "The Story of Harness Racing by Currier & Ives," will be on display in the Jugette Barn on the Delaware County Fairgrounds, Delaware, Ohio, September 18-22, 2016.

Made possible by the generous support of Burke Racing Stable LLC, the exhibit's 33 reproduction prints illustrate, in an artful way, the birth of the sport of harness racing and its early accomplishments. Prints depicting great trotting horses, bucolic mid-19th century scenes, and comedic adventures convey a picturesque view of Americana prior to the advent and development of photography.

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity for a glimpse at our sport's past in these colorful prints displayed in an ideal historical setting.

The Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame is located at 240 Main Street in Goshen, NY and is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm. Thanks to U.S. Trotting Association support, the Museum is currently offering free admission for walk-in visitors and group docent-guided tours at a minimal charge per person. For additional information about the Museum, its membership program, special events and educational programs, please call 845-294-6330 or visit www.harnessmuseum.com. Additional funding provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
