The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum is located in Jackson, Mississippi. 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]
