The late Billy Herrell turned his old store into a museum packed with obscure musical mementoes. Highlights include a working 1946 jukebox (it plays 78 rpm records) and Roy Rogers' red stagecoach.

Billy's House of Guitars and Musical Museum

Billy's House of Guitars and Musical Museum is a really cool place, full of musical relics and knickknacks.

They have so many autographs at Billy's, and not all music-related. Famous people such as Willie Nelson would just show up and they would broadcast from there. My wife and I felt so bad for the woman working there; we guess this was the [late] owner's wife or girlfriend; a very nice woman. The museum is musty, falling apart, but I don't think there's money to fix it. I hope we help put it on the map and they can keep it going.

Billy's House of Guitars and Musical Museum

Billy's House of Guitars is a guitar shop and museum in Glenwood. It has many autographed items and memorabilia. You wouldn't expect to find something of this caliber in such a small town.

[Dave Cole, 02/06/2016]

Billy (who died in 2014) collected more than guitars. His packed-solid museum contains a lot of obscure musical mementoes, and a full-size stagecoach.
