Event Description

The Story of Harness Racing by Currier & Ives, from the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame in Goshen, N.Y., features rare original Currier & Ives lithographs, gear, and posters that tell the history of a mid-19th century American pastime that became a national sport. The lithographs in this exhibition depict great trotting horses, bucolic mid-19th century scenes, and comedic adventures that convey a picturesque view of Americana prior to the development of photography. Examine racing equipment, equine care tools, driver colors or uniforms, and other memorabilia up-close in the hands-on tack trunk. The History Center will complement the exhibition with a display of items from the Ben White Raceway that reflects the rich history of the horseracing industry in Central Florida. Included in general admission.
