Museum hunts for new home

    Awareness? Concern? Outcry? They were no-shows last weekend as time ran out on a lot of history.

    Like some training camp invitee put on waivers, the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame and Museum is quietly packing up its belongings, getting ready to turn out the lights and shuffle out its doors on Southwest Third Avenue and Salmon Street for good.

    The hall’s lease expires June 30, and the building owners want the space for other purposes. “We’ve known for some time,” says Mike Rose, the hall’s executive director.

    The hall closed to the public Friday. It is looking for new digs, preferably downtown —and a dramatically different approach.
