The Museum established the Appalachian Trail Hall of Fame in 2011. Since then, legends of the Trail have been honored by election to the Hall of Fame each year. The 2023 Class will be announced later this year.
From 2011 through 2019, each Hall of Fame class has been honored at an A.T. Hall of Fame Banquet. We had to cancel the 2020 Banquet and we haven’t been able to hold one since then. We would like to reinstitute the annual tradition of a Hall of Fame Banquet. But, to do so, we need a Banquet Committee to organize and run the Banquet. Jim Foster, who organized the first nine Banquets, is willing to assist the Committee with the planning of the next Banquet.
