Miramichi Sports Wall of Fame

The City of Miramichi Sports Wall of Fame began as the Chatham Sports Wall of Fame in 1988. Inductions to the Chatham Wall of Fame were held annually until 1994, when Chatham became part of the City of Miramichi.

The Chatham Wall of Fame was revived in 2005 due to the initiative of Peter Nevin. This was to coincide with the 50th Anniversary observances for the Lord Beaverbrook Arena. Inductions to the Chatham Wall of Fame were made in 2005 and 2006 while discussions leading to the establishment of the City of Miramichi Wall of Fame were ongoing.
