    Here is the latest progress report on the Motown Museum expansion. Although the museum is currently closed, I strongly urge other forum members to contribute whatever
    they can to this worthwhile project. Go to www.motownmuseum.org for details on how to contribute and support this endeavour.

    Looks a great project, but I'm glad I visited Hitsville " as it was in the day".

    I've no doubt that the big Detroit players and their foundations... Gilbert, Illich, Fords, The Big 3, Davidson, and the rest with more money than they know what to do with and can actually use the tax writeoffs will provide all the funds needed for whatever funding is necessary to complete the project...

    While I'm 100% for the expansion of the complex, my only complaint is I wish they would have left the lawns intact in front of Hitsville and the rest of the homes. Brings to mind "paving paradise..." One of my favorite photos of Hitsville in the period is with The Supremes, H-D-H, and BG with the guitar hanging out on the front lawn. Obviously it was likely staged with promotion in mind, but it will be hard to picture that scene the next time I'm there with a sea of granite pavers in front of me instead. :[[

    I do agree StuBass1 that there is plenty more money around Detroit to finance the rest of the project. Hopefully a handful of these organizations will step up and take it over the line soon.
