Buddy Holly statue moved Friday morning

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Buddy Holly Statue has been moved. Workers moved the statue  and the plaques on the West Texas Walk of Fame Friday morning to demolish a long-broken fountain at 7th Street and Avenue Q.

The plaques and the life-size bronze statue of Buddy Holly were installed 30 years ago. They will be kept in storage and cleaned until they can be moved to the new Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Park at 19th Street and Crickets.

According to the Randy Truesdell with the City of Lubbock Parks and Recreation, the statue and plaques will be taken to Texas Bronze, a Lubbock company run by Steve Teeters. Teeters will be cleaning and refurbishing the statue and will house it at his business on East Broadway in Lubbock until the move to the new park in either October or November. The City of Lubbock does not want to risk any damage with multiple moves.
