Historical Note

The South Carolina Hall of Fame was dedicated on February 11, 1973 by Governor John C. West. It was created to recognize and honor those contemporary and past citizens who have made outstanding contributions to South Carolina’s heritage and progress. The Hall of Fame is a nonprofit corporation conducted under a state charter. It is located in the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. On September 21, 2001, Governor Jim Hodges signed into law a bill designating the South Carolina Hall of Fame as the state’s official hall of fame. Persons born in South Carolina who obtained recognition elsewhere and persons born elsewhere but who made their home in and obtained esteem and recognition in the state of South Carolina are eligible for induction.
