The Boone County Hall of Fame identifies individuals and organizations whose contributions of talent and ingenuity made an impact on Boone County’s past, helping it to become the progressive and thriving county it is today.
The stories of these individuals are preserved and displayed along the wall inside the lobby of the Walters History Museum. These exceptional individuals and organizations include Daniel Boone, for whom the county is named; pioneer physician Achilles F. Sneed; John William “Blind” Boone, known for his ragtime music; Albert Bishop Chance, founder of the electrical supply manufacturing facility AB Chance Company in Centralia; and Boone Hospital Center.
Nominations to the BCHS Boone County Hall of Fame are accepted throughout the year and are reviewed annually by the Endowment Trust Board. New members inducted into the Hall of Fame are honored at an annual reception. For more information about the Hall of Fame, or to nominate an individual or organization for consideration, call the Boone County Museum and Galleries,573-443-8936.
