Tennessee’s history has been shaped by men and women who have brought fame and fortune to the state. In acknowledgment of this fact, on April 21, 2015, the state legislature adopted House Resolution No. 324 which called for the establishment of a dignified place of recognition to record and display the names and contributions of these men and women. That is the purpose of The Tennessee State Hall of Fame. In addition to celebrating famous and successful people, this hall of fame recognizes many well-known ideas, institutions, movements and products that are identified with the state.
We invite you to visit the exhibits. You surely will come away with a better understanding of Tennessee’s role in American history and an enhanced appreciation for the men and women whose works and ideas combined to make Tennessee a great state.
We Hope You Enjoy,
