Some friends came into town and wanted to see what Montgomery had to offer, so naturally I took them to the cemetery. Funny, but true. We found it after a little bit as the navigation in my car was on the fritz at the time. There weren't any signs pointing us to where it was specifically located on top of... More

I am not a big country music fan, but even I could appreciate the impact Hank Williams had on the entire music culture. My husband wanted to see the grave site. I am glad we went. It is lovely and welcoming with benches to sit. We read the song titles engraved on the stone and even I began to sing.... More

If you have a love for country music this should be on your list of places to visit. I was proud to be able to pay my respects to a great legend. Hank Jr made his Momma and Daddys final resting place truley beautiful.

If you love music of any genre and know anything about the legendary Hank Williams and if you're nearby take a few moments to visit his and Audrey's gravesite. At the top of the hill bear right and it's on the left. Worth the stop.

It was neat to see the magnitude of this memorial - lots of benches to sit and pay your respects. I find it interesting Hank was buried with Audrey considering he was married after her but that was up to their son I guess.

HI and thank you for reviewing the resting place of Hank (and Audrey). Audrey was the love of Hank's life and the mother of Hank Jr. He and Audrey divorced in the spring of 1952 and he did marry again in the fall of '52 but it wasn't a legal marriage. He told friends of his such as Ray Price... More

My husband and I were passing by Montgomery, AL and saw signs for this and Hank's museum. He decided to take the exit and go to his grave site and his museum. The grave was very beautiful! We were both glad we went!

Was a neat place to visit. We stopped by early on a Sunday morning while traveling through on our way to Orlando. It was easy to get to and the memorial was very nice. There weren't many people there when we visited so it was easy to take plenty of pictures and read all of the stones. Would recommend for... More
