CANTON, Ohio — Monday's winter storm dumped heavy snow across Northeast Ohio, which made for some treacherous travel for drivers throughout the region. That's why multiple organizations and businesses decided to keep their doors closed for the day.
Among those staying closed is the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, which announced their closure for Monday shortly after 7:30 a.m. due to snow "making several roads impassable and travel in the area hazardous."
Officials say the Hall of Fame is expected to reopen Tuesday under normal hours.
“The safety and welfare of our guests and our staff and volunteers must always come first,” said Hall of Fame President Jim Porter.
