Become a Friend of the Museum

The Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown interpretive, walk through exhibit will be the permanent home for previously never before displayed items from Brown's life and career. A large portion of the collection has been lovingly donated by family and fans. Included for display will be unpublished photographs, memorabilia, original news articles, personal reflections, and much, much more.

The Mordecai Brown Museum welcomes you to join the growing number of people preserving the memory and legacy of Three Finger Brown. The museum will review for acceptance items of memorabilia, historical accounts, image likenesses, and representations of Mordecai Peter Centennial Brown. After review and acceptance of any Mordecai Brown item contributed to the museum, the donation/acquisition will be awarded a certificate of acceptance and given a place of honor within the commemoration of Mordecai Brown.

Additionally a library and reading room will adjoin the Brown exhibit. The library will be dedicated to the preservation of baseball in literature and open to historians and researchers. The growing collection of baseball literature includes fiction, non-fiction, biographies, newspapers, journals, yearbooks, and other publications pertaining to the written history of the game. The Mordecai Brown Museum will review and accept donations of individual baseball books as well as small or large collections relevant to the game.
