Really, really enjoyed seeing Hank's final resting place, and Audrey's too. I'm glad that it is so accessible to the public/fans and that it's not too commercialized and no fees. The memorials are just beautiful, and it's a really peaceful place to pay your respects. If you go to the Hank Williams Museum first, the staff will tell you a... More

A great epitaph to a legendary singer. Large memorial for a grave that includes Hank and Audrey one of his wives. Nice place to pay your respects to one that gave us such great music. The grave is on the far right hand of the cemetery. Easy to find.

Okay, not really a Hank Williams fan. But thought I should see this. I was fortunate. A good friend is the daughter of the artist that designed the memorial so she made a perfect guide. Much of what is interesting is the Oakwood Cemetery. It is a very historical place and I would suggest getting a tour. There are several... More

On our way from Georgia thru Alabama we stopped to see this memorial. Very elaborate monument for Hank and his wife. If you have time to wander thru older part of cemetery there is alot of history in this cemetery. I had expected a bigger place to park and visit near this memorial, but wasn't disappointed.
