Project hopes to raise money to preserve Tower Records' memory | News
SACRAMENTO, CA - Six years after Tower Records closed its stores, an effort to preserve its history is underway.
Tower Records got its start in a Sacramento drugstore, and for more than 40 years it was a gathering place, a cultural icon and an international music retailer.
Now, the Tower Records Project and the Center for Sacramento History hope to raise $300,000 to make the collection of artwork, photographs and business records of company founder, Russ Solomon, available to the public.
In addition to financial support the project will also be seeking your experiences, photographs and mementos to round out the story of tower records.
The goal is to take the collection across the country as a traveling exhibit and eventually find it a permanent home.
