Owensboro officials were inspired by another city in trying to raise the profile of the International Bluegrass Music Museum in the western Kentucky city.
After a trip to Dubuque, Iowa, Mayor Ron Payne told the Owensboro Messenger-
he’d like to see Owensboro do with the bluegrass museum what Dubuque has done with its National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium.
“They are working to make it a national museum, really putting Dubuque on the map,” said Payne, a member of the committee. “I’m convinced we have an opportunity to do something with our bluegrass museum.”
