The Mickey Vernon Sports History Museum Looking for a New Home

“The Mickey Vernon Sports History Museum of Delaware County, Pennsylvania is closing its doors. For nearly a decade it has found a place in the hearts of sports fans and most recently lived in the Granite Run Mall. Now the Mall is being demolished and the museum is looking for a place to call home.”
I spoke with Jim Vankoski to follow up on this report. Because the Granite Run Mall is due to be demolished, possibly in the fall, the Mickey Vernon Sports History Museum is looking for a new home. The Museum will be temporarily relocated at the Delaware County Historical Society Museum in Chester, 408 Avenue of the States. The Museum will have a grand opening for the exhibit tomorrow, 11-1pm. The exhibit will be at the site until October.
