About the Shanaman Sports Museum: The Shanaman Sports Museum is a volunteer-supported 501(c)(3) charitable, nonprofit corporation, and is dedicated to the preservation, promotion and presentation of the history of sports in Tacoma-Pierce County.
Our mission is to recreate the history of sports in the community by chronicling the evolution of various sports through written and visual display and to educate the public about our sports heritage.
This is accomplished by displaying sports artifacts in the museum; by producing a video documentary that shows some of our top athletes in action; cooperating with the Tacoma Athletic Commission on the publication of Playgrounds to the Pros: An Illustrated History of Sports in Tacoma-Pierce County which provides an historical perspective of over 40 sports, and on the establishment of the Clay Huntington Broadcast Center which offers photos, bios and radio and TV broadcasts of local sports announcers.
