One of many classic mall and retro retail internet sites, the MALL HALL OF FAME is a "Mid-mod Mall Museum", centered on American shopping centers built during the mid-20th century (1946-1979). There are short articles, photos, and at least one physical layout drawing for every mall inducted. Please check your favorite mall articles often as new content is frequently being added.
