Jack Dempsey Museum

Museum in Antonito

Manassa, a 10-minute drive northeast of Antonito, is home to a tiny one-room cabin where boxing legend Jack Dempsey was born as the ninth child of a poor mining family. It was a destitute childhood, but Dempsey channeled his hardship into boxing, and from 1919 to 1926 reigned as the heavyweight world champion. Boxing fans will enjoy this collection of memorabilia.
