A plaque commemorating the foundation of Notts County has been unveiled at Nottingham's Mercure Hotel.
Previously known as the George Hotel, the location was where "Notts Foot Ball Club" became official following a committee meeting within its walls in December 1864.
Colin Slater, who has reported on the club for more than 50 years as part of BBC Radio Nottingham, revealed the tribute outside the hotel in George Street on Sunday.
"The fact the plaque is here and the meeting took place here is of huge significance," Slater told the BBC website.
"Officers were elected, everything agreed to get the club running in a professional way. For the two years before it had been a bit hit and miss."
The Nottingham Civic Society and Notts fan Andy Black commissioned the black and white plaque at the entrance to the hotel.
Black said: "I think it will mean the world to most Notts fans that we can come into the city centre and see this.
"The Forest fans have the Brian Clough statue down the road and we will have this now."
