You Can Still Visit The Tiny West Virginia Diner Where Hank Williams Was Found Dead On New Years Day In 1953
As the final hours of 1952 waned, a snowstorm worsened across the southeast. That fateful New Year’s Eve, an electric blue Cadillac set out from Knoxville, Tennessee, headed north.
True to his word (from a song released just a month before he died), Hank never got out of this world alive. But you don’t want to get out of this world without visiting the Skyline Drive-In, Hank’s Last Stop!
And while you’re in the area, make a day of it, exploring the countless small nearby towns that are rich in coal heritage history of their own: Whipple, Glen Jean, Thurmond. And, of course, take in the view of the New River Gorge, which never gets old.
