From the Trapshooting HOF webpage:
Prior to 1924 the Grand American Trapshooting Tournament was held at various places throughout the United States. In that year, a permanent clubhouse and trap line were constructed by the association on land purchased by the Amateur Trapshooting Association in Vandalia, Ohio.
Through the years the trap line was expanded and auxiliary buildings were added in order to handle the constant increase of entries in the tournament. In 1968 the association refinished the white clapboard clubhouse in brick, and added a wing to house the newly-created Hall of Fame and Museum. Official dedication ceremonies and induction of 15 Enshrinees was held on August 19, 1969.
