  • Thanks to the farmer who keeps this shrine going. Fans truly appreciate it!! It's down back roads so make sure you see the Buddy Holly glasses then park. Follow the path down to the memorial.
  • Very nice piece of history.
  • Stopped there a couple of weeks ago. It is touching. The farmer who sacrifices three or four rows of corn so that random strangers can visit the site deserves everyone's thanks.
  • We went there today. I drove two hrs and it was worth it. Thank you to the farmer that maintains.
  • We went there once before, oh my god it's really something, I will go back again and again, and to the blue surf ballroom too . god bless you buddy, Ritchie and bopper. And that pilot too God bless you all.
