Backstory and Context
After Jennie's death, her friend Dixie Evans took over and helped to make the museum what it is today. It's first home was Helendale, CA. That site became famous in Burlesque circles young and old, becoming a pilgrimage site for all. In 2006 the Burlesque Hall of Fame moved to its current home in Las Vegas, where it plans to stay for a very long time. It is now a tourist attraction, recreational space, and research center.
