After years of fundraising and preparation, construction on the Blues Hall of Fame will begin today on South Main.

Over the next year, the headquarters of the Blues Foundation will be transformed into the hall of fame. The foundation is moving its offices to a temporary home during construction.

The Blues Foundation acquired the 12,000-square-foot building, located at 421 S. Main, in 2011. The project is being designed by Archimania, while Design 500 is creating the exhibits. The general contractor is Grinder, Taber & Grinder Inc.
