The oldest sports museum in the United States is getting a worthy addition in the near future in the form of the "Arnold Palmer Center For Golf History." Slated for completion in 2008, the center will honor the man who was the first to win a U.S. Amateur, U.S. Open and a U.S. Senior Open.
The purpose of the center is to house an exhibition gallery for USGA championship history, an archival storage space for artifact storage, and a research room for those studying materials housed there. With a price price tag of more than $16 million, the Palmer Center should be beautiful when completed. It will be over twice the size of the present museum.
