The Lake Placid Hall of Fame was established by the Olympic Regional Development Authority in 1983, three years after the Winter Olympics were held in the village. There are 87 members of the hall, as well as the members of the 1948 U.S. Olympic four-man bobsled team and the 1980 Olympic men's hockey team.
