Cooperstown, New York is Home to Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame. “The village is pure Americana, a one-stoplight town nestled between the Adirondacks and the Catskills in Central New York. It drew its name from the family of James Fenimore Cooper – whose father, William, founded the village – whose works of literature have become American standards. And yet, Cooperstown has become a synonym for “baseball” – thanks to a story about a Civil War general and the country’s love for a timeless game.” In 1936 the first Hall of Fame class of Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Christy Mathewson, Honus Wagner and Babe Ruth were elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Three years later the MLB Hall of Fame will now be opened to the public in Cooperstown, New York.
