High school athletic and sports history of Dearborn public and parochial prep teams is on display at the Dearborn Historical Museum’s McFadden-Ross House.

The exhibit, which opened April 6 and runs through the summer, features most of the championship teams from many past decades. The McFadden-Ross House is at 915 S. Brady Street. The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursday. Admission is free.

Fordson, Dearborn and Edsel Ford all havesports history showcase sections that have significant items, photos and trophies on display.

Also, Divine Child, and two former Catholic high schools, Sacred Heart and St. Alphonsus, have their sports legends showcased.

Acting Chief Curator Michael “Jack” Tate would like to see area residents enjoy the sports showcase.

“All Dearborn area residents who have an interest in sports legend history should come over and take a look at the display cases and proud heritage of our sports teams,” Tate said.

A large group of alumni represent graduates of the local Dearborn schools and are still living within the city limits and nearby cities.

Volunteers representing the individual high schools have helped make this fine exhibit one worth viewing in the near future.
