On Thursday, Hank Williams’ granddaughter Holly Williams visited the building where her grandfather spent his last night alive. She also met the bell hop at the former Andrew Johnson Hotel in Louisville Kentucky. The 18 year old at the time helped Hank into his room and back down to his car the next morning Sunday December 31st 1952. The building is now used by the local school board.

The last days of Hank Williams continue to fascinate fans as so many uncertainties remain. The trip through Tennesee, the stop in Knoxville, and then on to Oak Hill, West Virginia, where Hank was pronounced dead, continues to be big news in the media in local states.
Earlier, I linked to a news story in a West Virginia newspaper about a film on Hank Williams which is reportedly in pre production.
