WELCOME TO THE BILL MONROE MUSEUM

We are currently fundraising for the completion of the museum. This has been a long time coming for fans and friends of the “Father of Bluegrass.” Bill Monroe was born just down the road from Rosine, Kentucky on Jerusalem Ridge. His boyhood home was restored and has welcomed guests from all over the world since its opening ceremony. Bill walked among the ruins of the old Homeplace knowing plans for the restoration were in the works. He sat with a painter as they mixed colors to get just the right shade of green for the trim. Unfortunately, he cannot tell us about colors for the museum but, we know his spirit is with us as the project begins. Many of the folks in Rosine can recall stories and their actual days spent with Bill and his family. These are the tales and legends that will make the museum a fine tribute to the man
You can be part of this tribute with your support.
