A museum for Hank Williams Sr.
A museum planned to be built to commemorate legend singer Hank Wlliams Sr, whose hits included "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and "Your Cheatin' Heart," will soon come true. The town of Oak Hill has planned to change the former Pure Oil service station, where the country singer was found dead by his driver, into a museum for him.
Unfortunately, Williams' memorialization hasn't got support among state lawmakers, because of which an attempt to appoint a section of state Route 16 in Fayette County the "Hank Williams Sr. Memorial Road" failed during this year's legislative session.
Explaining on the plan, Oak Hill Mayor Barbara Hickman said Tuesday that a legal agreement to build the museum will be held by the town until it can be turned over to a new foundation that will administer the museum. For that reason, Hickman is encouraging donations of memorabilia and hopes that state funds will be allotted for the project.
