Museum Artifact Examples
Here are a just a few of the hundreds of items that you will be able to see at the museum:
We have the largest collection of pre-olympic Squaw Valley artifacts including the first Squaw Valley Pennant (circa 1951) and the Brochure for Squaw Valley Summer activities (circa 1954).
There are over 100 artifacts from what is called “the spectators experience” including the items that were for purchase and all of the written materials used. Shown above is a decal that was sold, a felt hat from our Olympic hat collection and an Olympic cigarette lighter.
Numerous businesses advertised using Olympic messages and Logos. Shown here is the Olympic Survival bag and banner from the Harrolds Club – the original contents of the bag are perserved and are in the museum to see!
We have the largest collection of 1960 Olympic pins and jewelry including the rare ski patrol pin as well as, bracelets, cuff links and tie clasp made by Squaw Valley Corporation.
These are only a few of over 200 Olympic and Pre-Olympic artifacts that you can see at the museum!
