Rockabilly Hall of Fame Museum
The Rockabilly Hall of Fame Museum preserves the history of rockabilly music and features numerous concerts throughout the year. It was founded in 1997 by Bob Timmers and so far has inducted about 400 songwriters, singers, disc jockeys, promoters and producers. Interesting items include blue suede shoes owned by Carl Perkins and the defibrillator used to try to revive Elvis Presley (the hall of fame contains a large Elvis collection). Visitors can see many items on display as well as photographs and several life-size paintings of famous rockabilly artists.
