Bristol’s refusal to fund museum caused its move – Bristol Herald Courier (press release) (blog)

Mullins said the association board sent an official request to the city for money to help cover operations, and since the request was turned down, the board moved to Kingsport to stay open.

KINGSPORT, Tenn. — The Mountain Music Museum and the Pickin’ Porch moved from Bristol to Kingsport because its request for $20,000 from the city of Bristol, Tennessee, was rejected, three museum officials said Thursday.

The Mountain Music Museum will reopen on Jan. 27, from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m.

She added that not getting the money from Bristol turned out to be a blessing.

White, the musician and artist who created the country music mural in downtown Bristol, agreed.
