The World Figure Skating Museum and Hall of Fame is a museum that showcases figure skating and its history. It is the only museum of its kind in the world. In 2008, About.com's Figure Skating Guide, Jo Ann Schneider Farris, visited the museum. This is a photo she took during her visit.

At the age of 16, Jimmy Grogan earned a spot on the 1948 U.S. Olympic team. Four years later, in 1952, he won an Olympic bronze medal. Grogan finished second four times at the world championships. Grogan then skated with Ice Capades and coached figure skating. In 1991, he was inducted into the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame.
