HANK WILLIAMS MUSEUM
A country music legend lives on in Fayette county, West Virginia.
On New Year's Day in 1953, country music legend Hank Williams was on his way to a concert in Canton, Ohio. An alcoholic, Williams was drinking and receiving morphine injections on the way. His chauffer, while driving through Oak Hill, noticed Williams was unresponsive and pulled over to check him. Unfortunately, Williams had died while laying in the back seat.
Jimmy Heffernan, a long time Hank William fan, has created a museum in honor of the country music legend. Located in the Mountain Laurel Restaurant in Fayetteville, this collection is vast. Williams cowboy hat, shirt and wallet are some of the items you'll find at the Hank Williams Museum along with thousands of rare photographs. If you're a country music fan, this place is a must.
