Atlanta is adding to its already impressive roster of attractions—the College Football Hall of Fame, relocating from South Bend, Indiana and the newly established Black College Football Hall of Fame. With millions coming into the city each year to cheer on their favorite teams, it's no surprise that sports fans are eagerly awaiting its arrival.
The College Football Hall of Fame, slated for completion in summer 2012, will be located in the heart of Downtown. Next to Centennial Olympic Park, favorites—like the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca-Cola—will only be a short walk away.
The city will also welcome the Black College Football Hall of Fame. The project has garnered support from prominent sports enthusiasts, including New York Times columnist William C. Rhoden and Georgia One Bank Founder Willard "Chuck" Lewis. Atlanta's rich cultural history and proximity to half of the nation's Historically Black Colleges and Universities made the decision an easy one.
