TUSCUMBIA, Ala. — The Alabama Music Hall of Fame is getting a facelift.

Officials have wanted to renovate the Tuscumbia museum’s lobby to accommodate larger audiences for concerts, but lacked money for the project.

The TimesDaily of Florence reports that the Shoal Homebuilders’ Association can provide as much as $10,000 for materials and labor for the work.

Bobby Bryan of Bobby Bryan Builders says the renovation will provide an additional 50 to 60 seats for shows at the music hall. Bryan says work could begin in the next week or so and should take about a month to complete.

Directors discussed the work during a meeting Thursday. Officials have wanted the work for more than a year.
