Paula Deen Museum: Coming to Albany, Georgia!

by at .

She's been dropped by corporate partners left and right, but a two-year quest to dedicate a Paula Deen museum in Albany, Georgia, is apparently still underway.

Business woman BJ Fletcher has been working with the Deens and the city to move Paula's childhood to one of two downtown locations for the museum.

"Well, if you think about it, when visitors come, the first thing they do is they come to the Visitor's Bureau," she said of the potential Albany attraction.

"The Riverfront Bar-be-que, Ice Cream Scoops, Flint Riverquarium, et cetera. And it's be cool to sort of sandwich it right in the middle of all of that."

The proposed Paula Deen Museum would include a retail shop as well as cooking facilities for students that would no doubt feature Paula Deen recipes.

No official location or date has been established, but it looks like it'll take more than lawsuits or Aunt Jemima rumors to taint her reputation back home.

What do you think, THGers? Would you stop by?
