The ProRodeo Hall of Fame is dedicated to the preservation of rodeo artifacts and continued interest in the sport. It is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and run by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association's board. It claims to be the "only museum in the world devoted exclusively to the sport of rodeo."
The museum opened in August 1979. It was closed indefinitely in January 2005 due to financial issues. It reopened again on April 9, 2005. The hall gets 40,000-50,000 visitors each year.
Famous quotes containing the words fame and/or hall:
“It is remarkable that the dead lie everywhere under stones.... Why should the monument be so much more enduring than the fame which it is designed to perpetuate,a stone to a bone? Here lies,MHere lies;Mwhy do they not sometimes write, There rises? Is it a monument to the body only that is intended?”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Sweet death, small son, our instrument
Your cries and hungers document
Our bodily decay.”
—Donald Hall (b. 1928)
