Terrace Hill has received funding from Humanities Iowa to host a free, educational presentation entitled How Iowa Met Baseball: The Myths, the History, the Players. Join us on Monday, June 19 at 1:30 pm in the Terrace Hill Drawing Room for the program presented by historian, John Liepa. 

About the program:
Over the past century the setting for the spring passion of many Iowans has been the ballpark. This presentation explores the myths of baseball’s origins, the early history and evolution of the game, baseball’s journey to Iowa, and the role of the Civil War in spreading its popularity. Guests will learn about some of Iowa’s baseball pioneers and view an extensive collection of baseball memorabilia featuring Iowa players. 

This is a free program, but advance registration is required as space is limited. Register online at https://thbaseball.eventbrite.com or contact Claire Sowder at claire.sowder@governor.iowa.gov or 515-281-7205.
