Hiram King "Hank" Williams (September 17, 1923-January 1, 1953) was an American country
performer. Though unable to read or write music to any significant degree, he came to be
regarded as among the greatest country music stars of all time.
He charted numerous number one hits in the country music world, and his songs have been recorded by hundreds of other artists, many of whom have also had hits with the tunes. Williams has been covered in a range of pop, gospel, blues and rock styles. He had 11 number one hits in his career. Ironically, his final single release was titled "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive".
Hank and his family moved into this 1850 Georgiana house in 1931. This is the only house remaining that Hank Williams lived in prior to becoming Nashville star. The Museum opened in 1993. Hank Williams memorabilia, artifacts, pictures and personal belongings are displayed.
Hank William's final resting place is located in Oakwood Cemetery Annex in Montgomery, Alabama.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the museum. Being inside the building, reminded me of a couple of homes I lived in as a kid. I found myself just wandering through the various rooms and exhibits. Loved the low-key atmosphere. When you get there just take your time and enjoy.
Note: There is also a Hank Williams Museum on Commerce Street in Montgomery, Alabama. We have feature in the Montgomery visit.
