“A must for any country western fan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

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.

“Happy for Hank”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

A talented man with demons is laid to rest not far from downtown Montgomery, A little gaudy but fitting for the man, his wife and the time of his life. It can be a little complicated to find--you have to go by the main Oakwood cemetery and the St. Margaret cemetery till you come to the Annex but there is a sign by the road. Surrounded by graves of unknown soldiers from the Civil War, these cemeteries lay testament to the men and women buried there.

“Very nice memorial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I rode my motorcycle down to Montgomery to see the memorial and it was a good visit. The memorial itself is very interesting to look at and the cemetery it is within is also nice. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
