The History Center on Main Street, Mansfield PA Presents:

The Blue and Gold Room

 

When you enter the door to the Blue and Gold Room on the first floor of our 1849 Church Building at 61 North Main Street, you will be awash in a beautiful sea of blue and gold. These are the colors of Mansfield High School and now North Penn-Mansfield High School. Sports clothing, banners, band uniforms, our collection spans decades from the 1920s to the present. You will be flooded with memories of high school and the events these items represent.

Many of these attractive items have been packed away in closets and attics for years, and now they have a chance to be out in the open where they can be seen and appreciated. Every item in the collection has its own story to tell and is identified by the Mansfield High School student who owned and used it.

The following pictorial catalog shows you what is in that room. If you live at a distance and donít have the chance to visit, you can get a glimpse this way. We like to hold receptions for the high school reunion classes so the members can see this and the many other exhibits we have created in our facility. The catalog is always out of date, because new items come in regularly. Whatís hiding in your attic that will help tell this story and further enhance this exhibit?
