The Morgan County Hall of Fame was established in 1976 with 31 inductees. Three honorees were added in 1986, and eight more in 2012. The purpose was and remains to recognize men and women who were born and/or resided in Morgan County and who achieved county and state or national prominence giving fame to Morgan County and beyond. With 2022 being the bicentennial of Morgan County, it is hoped that eight more citizens can be honored bringing the total to 50.
