From humble beginnings, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and
Museum has become one of the nation's most recognizable and popular
educational institutions. The Hall of Fame Museum is located in the
pastoral village of Cooperstown in central New York State, nestled
between the Catskill and Adirondack mountains, 70 miles west of
Albany, the state capital.
Located on Main Street, the Baseball Hall of Fame officially
opened its doors on June 12, 1939. Cooperstown represents a step
back in time, with buildings dating to the early 19th century and
orange geraniums hanging from classically-styled streetlights. More
than 350,000 people travel to the Village each year to pay tribute
to our National Pastime by visiting the Hall of Fame, an institution
which honors excellence, preserves history and connects
A claim that U.S. Civil War hero Abner Doubleday invented
baseball in Cooperstown was instrumental in the early marketing of
the Baseball Hall of Fame.
