Paul Brown Museum
The Massillon Tigers are among the Top 5 most winningest high-school football programs of all time, and Paul Brown is regarded as one of the top ten football coaches in the game’s history. A Hall-of-Famer, subject of numerous documentaries, innovator of strategies which revolutionized American football, champion of integration during a turbulent era in our country, and founder of two NFL football teams, Brown has left a legacy not only celebrated in Massillon, Ohio, but in all of America.
The Massillon Tiger football tradition resonates not only with players and fans of the sport, but with the entire community; it is made up of the Tiger Swing Band, cheerleaders, boosters, school administration, students, business owners, and many more. This new tribute is a permanent space in Massillon Museum, located at 121 Lincoln Way East in Massillon, Ohio — only 8 miles away from the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.
