  2. Navajo Blanket Donation Exhibit

    The Farmington Museum is proud to announce an incredible gift of 21 historic Navajo blankets generously donated by XTO Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation. The Navajo blankets range in age from 1870 to 1900 and contain two third-phase Chief’s blankets, a small wearing blanket, and many other examples of early Navajo weaving from the blanket period.

  5. Knocking It Out of the Park: Celebrating 50 Years of Connie Mack EXHIBIT

    July 26 - November 1

    Fifty years ago, a delegation of Farmington businessmen traveled to the American Amateur Baseball Congress Annual Meeting in Chicago in what many thought was a futile effort to bid on the 1965 Connie Mack World Series. The delegation presented a convincing story and won the bid by one vote. 2014 marks the 50th year Farmington has hosted the Connie Mack World Series. It is not by chance or by accident that this tournament continues to be a success. It has been a team effort from the beginning. Since Farmington hosted its first tournament in 1965, the Connie Mack World Series has grown to be the largest and highest esteemed tournament in the realm of amateur baseball. The Farmington Museum is proud to present this exhibit honoring Farmington’s rich baseball heritage and the legacy of baseball in America.
