Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame

A visit to this museum will educate and entertain people to the world of harness racing, horses, and the people associated with them. My wife and I rode in' the 3D race and enjoyed it. Small museums of this kind have a lot to offer and should not be passed by.

Birthplace of Trotting. Large collection of Currier and Ives lithographs of American Trotters. Hall of Fame of harness racing jockeys. Many interactive features: sit behind a sulky, participate in a horse auction, announce a race. 3-D simulator of a harness race.

Sometimes you will see horses training on the historical track out back (The famous trotter Hambletonian grazed under a tree on that track in 1849). The building was originally a stable, built in 1913.
