Hank Williams Sr. – Alabama Tourist Sites and Music History



This video features Hank WIlliams Sr. Alabama Tourist Sites and Music History, It begins in Georgiana, Alabama at Hank’s childhood home. Then I drive up Highway 31, which was the highway Hank would have taken in his day, into the town of Greenville, Alabama. When Hank was 11 he sold peanuts and shined shoes near the Butler Country Coutrhouse. In his teens, he played with his band at the Ritz Theatre down the road.

From there I went up to Montgomery to Hank’s gravesite. Then I stopped at his statue near the Riverfront, which is within walking distance of the Hank Williams museum and the following other places:
▶City Auditorium (Perry at Monroe Street), where Hank’s funeral was held to a crowd of 20,000.
▶The Elite Cafe Site (119 Montgomery St.), where Hank held his last performance.
▶Jeff Davis Hotel (344 Montgomery St.), where the WFSA radio station was located. They helped give Hank his start by playing his songs on the radio.
▶Rosa Parks Museum (252 Montgomery St.), formerly the site of empire theatre. This is the first venue Hank played at and the site where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus.
