In 1990, the NEGRO LEAGUES BASEBALL MUSEUM (NLBM) incorporated as a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. In 1991, they opened their doors to the public in a tiny one-room office inside the historic LINCOLN BUILDING with a dream of building a permanent facility that would pay rightful tribute to AMERICA's unsung baseball heroes. Few gave the NLBM any chance of succeeding. But then again, few gave the NEGRO LEAGUES any chance of succeeding and the leagues would operate for 40 years. For more information, visit www.nlbm.com.
