The Cobourg and District Sports Hall of Fame was created in recent years thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers who strive to preserve local sports history. They have also collected and cataloged sports memorabilia and historical information that is displayed online and with memorabilia in the CCC’s main hall. These displays are turned outwards; The full collection can be viewed at cdshf.ca.
