Thanks to all who are sending in their best wishes for our Museum's upcoming move.
The entire Board of The Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum, as well as so many of our community neighbors, are excited, nervous and anxious - all at the same time.
We never would have thought that Joe Jackson's personal home would go through a 2nd FULL move - but just like Joe himself, when he played, our Museum is always looking ahead. And what we see is a very bright future with bigger and better things to come.
Joe Jackson was a quiet man who let his bat do his talking. We're going to try to emulate him by continuing to honor his memory. We'll do this by keeping his name and amazing baseball accomplishments in the forefront. We'll showcase some wonderful historical artifacts and become even more involved in Joe's hometown community, allowing for this all time legend, one of baseball's greatest hitters, to live on.
Baseball seems to have a special place in the hearts of so many. Combine this great game with a true legend and you really have something special.
Just as Greenville, SC is going through such tremendous growth, look for OUR Museum to do the same. Of course, we know that it is because of all of YOU - Joe Jackson fans, baseball fans (young and old), our wonderful volunteers and the entire baseball community - that our growth is even possible.
We thank you so much for all your support, contributions and donations as we move forward.
With sincere appreciation and respect,
The Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum Board of Directors
