In 1947, C.J. Stark opened the original Skyline Club in North Austin. For the better part of a half a century this neon giant heralded the likes of Patsy Cline, Roger Miller, Elvis Presley, Hank Thompson, Lefty Frizzell, The Geezinslaws, and countless other musical headliners of the times.

Hank Williams Sr. and Johnny Horton played their last public concerts under the shadow of this unique sign.

Since 1981, it has been stored in Bee Cave, Texas waiting to once again to become a visible part of Austin's history.

When the equally revered Hill's Cafe re-opened in May, 2001, these two legends were united for the preservation of Austin's historical character.
