New York's rich heritage

Sports History

From the Boxing and Baseball Hall of Fame to the historic Saratoga Race Course, to playing host to one of America’s greatest Olympic triumphs that helped all to believe in miracles- New York is synonymous with athletic awe and achievements.
Learn how a town simply wanted to recognize two of its hometown boxing heroes and how that honor turned into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota.
Created in the mid 1800’s by two men who simply wanted to run their horses, Saratoga Race Course is the oldest continually operating race track in the country. Across the street unique and exciting collections are on display at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.
Timeless treasures of America’s past time are located at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
Lake Placid may have two of the greatest sports miracles ever - for it is the site of the famous “Miracle on Ice” hockey game between the United States and Russia and the fact that this tiny village is one of only seven places in the world to hold the Olympics twice.
Just some of the historic places on New York’s Path Through History.
