LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Allison house, where Buddy Holly and the Crickets wrote one of their most famous songs - 'That'll Be the Day' - has been moved to the east side of the Buddy Holly Center.

The home will be landscaped and fenced to compliment the museum.

It was moved from its original location on 6th Street near Avenue W more than 5 years ago.

City officials said there weren't enough funds in the past to restore the Allison house, But now local homebuilder Art Cuevas and other local businesses spearheaded the project to bring this landmark back to life.

The restoration should be completed by next spring.
