National Retriever Museum

The Retriever Field Trial Hall of Fame was dedicated in 2004 and contains 6,400 square feet of space. Within the walls of this museum is a rich history of many breeds of Retrievers. The most common of these breeds are the Goldens, the Labrador and the American Chesapeake Retrievers. Dogs and people alike are enshrined in the Retriever Field Trial Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame continues to grow through donations and the efforts of the dogs, their trainers and their owners. These are the changes being made on a continuous basis.

The Golden Retriever originally comes to the U.S. from England. The Labrador Retrievers were established in the Newfoundland area and were first distinguished by the American Kennel Club. The Chesapeake Retriever originates from the East Coast of America.
