The Greyhound Bus Museum was the inspiration of former Hibbing city councilor and local grocer Gene Nicolelli. He discovered a commemorative plaque from Greyhound corporation in the city hall attic and delved right in to the history of the company. Mr. Nicolelli almost single-handedly raised money to build the museum and acquire all manner of Greyhound ephemera, souvenirs, company uniforms, documents, objects and advertising materials – not to mention buses! The museum was renamed in his honor after his passing in 2014.
