The Cleveland Browns have completed several new displays to highlight and recognize the history of the team at Heritage Hall inside Cleveland Browns Stadium.
Pro Football Hall of Fame coach Paul Brown was an innovator in the game of football and used cameras to film practices and study game film. The camera is on display, courtesy of the Paul Brown Museum. A film projector and reel-to-reel film from the team archives are prominently featured in the practice/game film display.
There is also a display on the brief history of the Browns’ majorettes and cheerleaders where a cheerleader uniform, as well as a majorette jacket and piggy bank, are featured.
The Browns have recognized the 1964 Championship team by featuring a game program and Gary Collins’ jersey from his three-touchdown performance in the title game.
The team also has a display honoring the newest inductees to the Browns Legends, running back Ernie Green and defensive back Clarence Scott.
“We are happy to be able to add these new displays to Heritage Hall throughout the season,” said Tony Dick, the Browns’ manager of alumni relations. “Heritage Hall is a place where we can honor our team’s rich history and tradition. These new displays will blend in well with our existing exhibits. We want Heritage Hall to be an enjoyable and educational experience for our fans.”
On a game-by-game basis, the Browns have rotated displays, including game-used ticket stubs and game programs from the 1950s Browns-Philadelphia Eagles games. They also had a Browns-Cincinnati Bengals game display with a game ball from the last meeting between the teams at Cleveland Municipal Stadium in 1995.
The Browns also have a display dedicated to former Browns offensive lineman Mike “Mo” Scarry, who was the last surviving member of the original 1946 Browns.
Heritage Hall is a 4,600-square foot exhibition space in BrownsTown at Cleveland Browns Stadium and serves as a tribute to the team’s rich history. Heritage Hall is open on game days, two hours prior to kickoff at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
