National Rivers Hall of Fame

The National Rivers Hall of Fame focuses on the lives of people who made their living on and around the rivers in the United States.[7] The Hall of Fame was created in 1985 and over 100 experts on American rivers, including conservationists, writers and historians, voted for the first inductees.[8] John P. Bickle was one of the driving forces behind the creation of the Hall of Fame which started fund-raising in 1979.[9][10] The Hall of Fame building has a 62-seat theater.[11]
