Oklahoma Hall of Fame Banquet & Induction Ceremony | November 17

Being inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame is the highest honor an Oklahoman can receive from the state. Since the Oklahoma Hall of Fame’s inception in 1927, 677 accomplished individuals have received this commendation. The names of the Hall of Fame members, as well as busts and portraits of these individuals, can be seen at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum.


“Went to this museum on a school field trip and I was BLOWN AWAY!! It's very easy to navigate and you certainly leave feeling incredibly proud of Oklahoma. The interactive media elements were beautifully done, and they all worked - which isn't always the case in these kid-friendly museums.”

Hal Smith Restaurants to open Legacy Grill in Bricktown Restaurant featuring Oklahoma legends to open in September OKLAHOMA CITY – Hal Smith Restaurants today announced the upcoming opening of Legacy Grill, a new Bricktown dining option focused on celebrating Oklahomans and their unique contributions to the world of athletics, business, entertainment, public policy and more. Legacy Grill’s menu will feature favorites from Kd’s Southern Cuisine, which previously occupied the space, as well as new and updated dining choices. “Being founded and headquartered here in central Oklahoma, we’ve wanted to introduce a concept like this for a long time,” said Hal Smith, the restaurant group’s founder and CEO. “Whether guests are old friends or are dining with us for the first time, we think they’ll enjoy our combination of upscale comfort food, top-notch service and a fun, engaging atmosphere.” Smith wants fans and foodies alike to know there will be a new take on some elements of the dining experience, but the essence of the restaurant's menu will be upheld, with the famous fried chicken headlining the fare. Whether diners are in the mood for “fried or fresh,” Smith said guest feedback has been factored into each decision, so there is something to fit every taste. Guests will be surrounded by images and memorabilia of more than 200 notable Oklahomans, from astronauts and actors, to civil rights activists and civic leaders, to sports stars and singers, and many more. Distinguished Oklahomans will rotate regularly over time and will celebrate the diversity of Oklahoma’s population, representing not only a range of professions and contributions, but also a variety of races, ages and perspectives. Many of these pieces will be on loan from the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, one of the state’s leading institutions for preserving and recognizing the contributions of Oklahomans to society. “Legacy Grill is creating an atmosphere that aligns with what we at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame do every day – telling our state's amazing story through our people,” said Shannon L. Rich, Oklahoma Hall of Fame CEO. “We think it will help bring a unique aspect to the dining experience, and hopefully guests will learn something fun while being inspired by Oklahoma's best and brightest along the way.”
