I have lived in Florida since 1966 and visited the International Swimming Hall of Fame many times and been at the pool for swimming and diving events. The ISHOF served as the model for the original International Gymnastics Hall of Fame in Orange County, California which has now moved to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It is tragic that Ft. Lauderdale has not been savvy enough to find a way to keep the ISHOF in its location in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. It is a perfect location and many, many visitors come to this location each year. Many of the items in the ISHOF archives are priceless. It is unbelievable that after the long previous history of swimming and diving, that the politicians of Ft. Lauderdale will let this gem slip away to another community.
