Iowa Baseball Museum of Norway
This museum in Norway, Iowa tells the story of how baseball came to town after the Civil War and resulted in twenty state high school championships.
Over the years, Norway produced prolific numbers of college and semi-pro players, 17 minor leaguers, and 4 Major Leaguer Baseball players. The building was built in 1905, to be the Benton County Savings Bank by Jake Kimm, a baseball player. A hundred years later, it was remodeled by former Norway baseball players and became the museum.
