About Us

Our Story

At the Urban Sports Hall of Fame of Syracuse, NY, we are passionate about preserving local sports history, educating the next generations, and recognizing and honoring those who made an impact on our community who unfortunately went mostly unnoticed.

Everyone has a story. Some stories are made into Hollywood films, others are swept under the carpet to never be recognized again. At the USHOF of Syracuse, NY, we are striving to uncover those "diamonds in the rough", those stories that were forgotten, those that were overshadowed.

We encourage engagement and interaction with you. We want to hear your stories, we want your history to be shared and recognized, because you may find no one else will do it for you.
