Whether bitter rivals from Michigan and Ohio State or iconic figures like Mike Ditka and Peyton Manning, many of history’s best football players can be found together in Atlanta, Georgia. They don’t actually live there, but rather are immortalized as inductees of the College Football Hall of Fame.
Originally built in 1978 in Kings Mill, Ohio, the Hall competed against the similarly-located Pro Football Hall of Fame. It was later moved to South Bend, Indiana where it held its home until 2012 when Atlanta was identified as the final destination. Centrally located with one of the country’s busiest airports and convention industries, Atlanta serves as an ideal venue for the Hall to attract optimal foot traffic and engage fans.
