What do Dionne Warwick, Bill Parcells and Joe Piscopo have in common? They’re all in the 2013 class of New Jersey Hall of Fame inductees. Joining more than 60 others from past years, many of whom are honored in the state Hall of Fame’s new mobile museum, an 850-square-foot trailer packed full of Jersey pride.

“The whole point of the mobile is to challenge children — and adults, for that matter — to think about what’s possible, to dream. And I think our inductees prove that when you dream, and you make a plan and you work hard, and you never give up, anything is possible,” said Steve Edwards, president of the New Jersey Hall of Fame Foundation board.

This museum is the only mobile Hall of Fame in the country and has been years in the making. Sponsors donated the $400,000 to buy the trailer and equipment, and Edwards and his team helped bring the museum to life.

“From Edison to Einstein, Springsteen to Morrison, our inductees have shaped the world in a very profound way. And I think that’s something that we should all be very proud of and inspired by,” said Edwards.
