The PEI Sports Hall of Fame & Museum

The Museum and Display Area of the PEI Sports Hall of Fame

The Prince Edward Island Sports Hall of Fame and Museum was incorporated in 1968, and had its first home at the Summerside High School, then Summerside Town Hall, before moving to the Eptek Centre in 1978.

Island artist and Summerside resident Wayne Wright, who has drawn the portraits for every Hall of Fame member, must receive great credit for his work at this time, in displaying the artifacts and curating the Hall of Fame. Wayne has worked tirelessly for the Hall through the years, and a special award was made in his honour in 2016 which recognizes groups or individuals who have served the Hall in various capacities. 

In 1997 the Hall found a home at the Wyatt Centre after a significant fund-raising campaign, under the expert leadership of Hall member, and future chairman, Paul H. Schurman.

Unfortunately, in the spring of 2012, owners of the facility asked the Hall to move out, but in October 2014, the City of Summerside came to the fore, and a new display area was erected at Credit Union Place, where it stands to this day.

We sincerely thank the City of Summerside for their support in providing space for this display, which is unmanned, and follows the opening hours of Credit Union Place

Efforts are made to change the displays on a regular basis.

The PEI Sports Hall of Fame acknowledges that the land at Credit Union Place on which it is located is on the traditional and unceded territory of the Abegweit Mi’kmaq First Nation.
