In 1990 the Clearwater Horseshoe Club’s clubhouse was enlarged to 24’ by 27’. With the increase in space the Florida State Horseshoe Pitchers Association (FSHPA) authorized the establishment of a Hall of Fame exhibit to be housed at the Clearwater facility.
The Hall of Fame exhibit was dedicated in February 1991. Clearwater Mayor, Rita Garvey, and City Council members participated in the dedication ceremony as well as all living Florida Hall of Fame members and surviving spouses. The Florida Hall of Fame is recognized as one of the best in the NHPA. Several of the Clearwater Horseshoe Club members have been inducted into the Florida Hall of Fame and into the National (NHPA) Hall of Fame.
