Hall of Fame Inc.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame was the first hall of fame built to honor a single professional American football team. The original Packers Hall of Fame consisted of exhibits displayed in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena. In 1967, the Packer Hall of Fame Association, a separate, independent corporate entity from the team, was founded. Annual induction ceremonies began in1970. The Hall of Fame’s first permanent facility was an addition to the Brown County Veterans Arena and was formally dedicated on April 3,1976, by President Gerald R. Ford.
The Hall of Fame was relocated to a new home within the new Lambeau Field Atrium on Sept. 4, 2003. On Aug. 21, 2015, a completely new Hall of Fame opened on the first floor. The new Hall has 15,000 square feet contains a vast array of Packers memorabilia, artifacts and trophies. A tribute to the greatest story in sports, the new facility uses the latest technology, enhanced interactive displays and a treasure trove of artifacts to educate and inspire visitors about the rich history of the Packers, as well as the teams of today.
The Hall of Fame includes 159 inductees, with new members being inducted annually. Also featured are Packers who are also in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc., established in 1967, is an independent not-for profit organization committed to preserving and advancing the storied history of the Green Bay Packers.
