Waukegan's Past-Time at the Waukegan History Museum in Bowen Park

The exhibition "Waukegan's Past-Time" at the Waukegan History Museum explores the town's longstanding connection with baseball since 1859. It showcases the town's baseball history, including teams like the Athletic Baseball Club and the Belvidere National and Waukegan Baseball Clubs from the early 1870s. Through vintage photos and memorabilia, the exhibit illustrates the town's baseball heritage, highlighting community spirit and enduring passion for the sport. Today, the Museum portrays life of the late Victorian period in 1870s Waukegan through the use of carefully researched wallpapers, carpets, drapes, light fixtures and period furnishings from prominent Waukegan families.
