Hank Aaron museum coming to Georgia State, as memorial to be bigger than expected

Georgia State University plans to name its new athletics complex in Summerhill after Hank Aaron and create a museum in his honor, according a person familiar with the project.

Georgia State has been working with Aaron’s widow, Billye, on the design. It will feature a 24/7, walkthrough memorial for the Atlanta Braves icon, at the former site of Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. It will sit between GSU’s soon-to-be built baseball and softball complex, which will also be named after Aaron.

The entire project is expected to cost closer to $20 million, up from the originally estimated $10 million, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
