The Holiday Season is upon us, and it is a time to reflect on the past year and to look forward to what lays ahead. This past year has seen some significant changes for our museum. The most obvious is the name change. We are now the New England Racing Museum. This change better reflects our mission. While the words are different, our commitment to preserving the rich racing history in and around New England is ever stronger and even more keen. I really like the new name and graphic, I hope you do too.
