The Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 1980 to honor Chautauqua County, New York area sports celebrities.
The CSHOF is an all-volunteer group governed by a thirty-member Board of Directors elected annually.
Nominations for induction are continually accepted and reviewed by the Board of Directors. Information on the nomination criteria and the process is available on the website.
The Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame welcomes new members and encourages them to be involved. A copy of the by-laws is available to assist those interested in understanding how the organization functions.
Our program includes an awards banquet. Held each February to induct a new group of honorees into the Hall of Fame, the banquet also provides an opportunity to recognize the special accomplishments of outstanding local, high school, and collegiate athletes.
The Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame maintains an Exhibit Hall in downtown Jamestown.
Hall Hours: Monday - Friday 12:00 - 3:00pm
Location: 15 West Third Street, Jamestown, New York 14701
An online Virtual Tour provides a glimpse of the special memories and artifacts visitors can see in person at the Exhibit Hall.
