Alabama Music Hall of Fame Considers a Move

Apr 11, 2013

The Alabama Music Hall of Fame's board of directors has given its executive director the authority to consider offers to move the attraction to Birmingham or Huntsville.

The TimesDaily reports ( ) that the Tuscumbia facility remains closed with no plans to reopen.

Executive Director Wiley Barnard said he was approached by groups interested in moving the hall of fame and at least a portion of the museum to the other Alabama cities. He would not specifically identify who approached him.

Barnard said the proposal from Birmingham could involve moving the hall to a location in or near Birmingham's Uptown Entertainment District, which is near the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex. The hall could be located in a facility that would also house a jazz museum and a blues museum in separate areas.
