The Chillicothe Hall of Fame, administered by the Livingston County Preservation Society, recognizes outstanding individuals from our past for their significant contributions to the cultural and historical development of Chillicothe, Missouri. Annually, one new member is inducted into the Hall of Fame.

To date, Hall of Fame members include Baker and Inventor Marion Franklin “Frank” Bench, Highway President Charles Francis Adams, Writer and Artist Olive Rambo Cook, Police Chief Maurice Dorney, Architect R. Warren Roberts, and Composer Claude T. Smith. The Livingston County Preservation Society has developed a mobile exhibit to honor these distinguished individuals.

Each spring, the Preservation Society invites community members to submit nominations for the upcoming 2024 inductee. Nominations, consisting of the nominee’s name and a 2-page biography detailing their accomplishments, may be submitted from now until April 30. Submissions can be sent to the Livingston County Preservation Society at 107 Locust Street, Chillicothe, MO 64601, or emailed as a Word or PDF document attached to [email protected]. Including contact information is required, and while not mandatory, pictures of the nominee are encouraged.

Nominees may possess unique and flamboyant personalities; however, it is essential that their personal and professional contributions and accomplishments positively reflect the spirit and values of the people of Chillicothe.

The criteria for nominees are as follows:

  • Must not have been convicted of any crime.
  • Must have been deceased for at least 35 years before the year of submission.
  • Must have resided in Chillicothe for no less than 5 years.
  • Their accomplishments must have significantly contributed to Chillicothe’s culture and values.

A committee of community members will review all submissions, fact-check, and edit biographies as necessary, and make the final selection.
