hall of fame


The North American Maple Syrup Council established the Maple Hall of Fame at the American Maple Museum in 1977 to recognize those who have excelled in research, development and leadership in the North American maple industry. In October each year, the NAMSC Hall of Fame Committee nominates two (2) individuals to be inducted in the Hall of Fame the following May during the museum’s annual re-opening ceremony. One room of the museum is dedicated to honoring the inductees with photos and plaques citing their contributions to the industry. This is the highest honor afforded by the maple syrup industry.
