Bon Bon Confectionery
Mount Hope, WV
One story claims that Hank Williams' car stopped at Bon Bon
Confectionery and Hardware Store in Mount Hope shortly before he was discovered
dead just up the road in Hilltop. The car supposedly stopped across the
street and Carr entered Bon Bon's. Carr reportedly claimed that Hank
wasn't feeling well and needed a drink. The waitress fixed a lemon sour
for Carr to take to the singer.
Today, Carr denies ever making the stop and the story does seem
doubtful since Hank was likely already dead. If the stop was made, perhaps
the drink was actually for Carr or the relief driver, Surface.
Below are some 2006 photos of Bon Bon Confectionery along with
Hank's supposed parking space.
The above photo shows the area Hank's car supposedly parked,
