It’s Hank Williams’ House!
Hank Williams was still Hiram King Williams when he and his family moved into this house in Georgianna, Ala. in the early 1930s. He lived here until he was 11 years old and learned to play guitar both inside and under this property. Legend has it Williams would hole up beneath the house during winter months to pick away in privacy. His mother had bought him the acoustic guitar for $3.50.
The city bought the house in the early ’90s and today it’s home to the Hank Williams Boyhood Home and Museum. Inside, one will find a cache of clothes and artifacts once owned by the legend. According to a historical marker outside the house, the singer moved away to Greenville in the autumn of 1934 and a few years later would change his name to Hank to begin a career-defining country music.
