Jazz pianist and singer Nat King Cole was born on March 17th, 1919 in a house at 1524 St John Street in Montgomery, Alabama, located where the ASU Stadium stands today.
The house was saved from demolition and has since been acquired by Alabama State University who relocated it in 2000 to the corner of Harris Way and North University Drive in Montgomery. The house next door was once the home of civil rights activist Dr Ralph Abernathy.
Born Nathaniel Adams Coles to Edward Coles, a Baptist minister, and his wife Perlina, Nat King Cole moved with his family to Chicago, Illinois when he was 4 years old.
The Hank Williams Museum is located on Commerce Street at Bibb Street in downtown Montgomery, Alabama.
The museum is dedicated to the popular American singer-songwriter and musician, who died in 1953, aged 29 years old.
