The Hall of Fame is updated each year to tell the stories of new inductees. These extraordinary Andersonians have succeeded in influencing history and gaining recognition, be it through business, politics, military feats, innovation, agriculture, or other endeavors.
The Anderson County Museum Hall of Fame recognizes people who have made outstanding contributions to Anderson County, its citizens and its way of life. Nominees are judged on a points system rating their contributions to the county and/or our nation and world. The judges look at how the nominee advanced his or her particular field and the ways in which these advancements were made. A nominee need not be a resident of Anderson County; however, residency will earn a slightly higher rating in the judges’ point system. Age, gender and race are not factors in the judging system process.
