BOSTON (AP) A vast trove of New England sports artifacts is being preserved by a sports museum nestled inside Boston's TD Garden.

The Sports Museum of New England is moving uniforms, trophies, photos, films and other unique sports artifacts it's amassed over nearly four decades into secure storage.

The effort is made possible by a partnership with Iron Mountain, a Boston records management company that's agreed to store the materials free of charge for perpetuity.

Most of the items being moved aren't currently on display at the TD Garden, which is home to the Bruins and Celtics. They're part of a growing off-site collection, located at the museum's original home along the Charles River.

Curator Richard Johnson estimates it represents roughly three-fourths of the museum's estimated $7 million in holdings.
