The hall of fame was established in 1961[1] and is currently located in a museum that displays the achievements of Mississippi athletes. The museum opened on July 4, 1996.[2] It is opposite the Smith-Wills Stadium, home of the Central League's Jackson Senators minor-league baseball team.[2][3]

Among the exhibits in the museum are the "Dizzy Dean Museum", the "Viking Classic Exhibit", which gives the history of Mississippi's PGA golf tournament, and the "Wendy's High School Gallery", which recognizes the Wendy's High School Heisman winners from Mississippi, as well as past and current state champions.[4]
