The “Hometown Teams” supporters roared out in force to relive the sports history of Franklin Parish during the Old Post Office’s Museum on Main Street exhibition, replete with sports memorabilia such as school letter jackets and team photos donated by the community.

Project director Kay LaFrance reported unprecedented crowds during the opening pep rally, exhibition hours, and the 2016 Catfish Festival.

The museum is located at 513 Prairie Street in Winnsboro, where the exhibition is open through April 30.
