A major artifact from the original Woodstock is headed to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum.

Per NBC’s Cleveland affiliate WKYC, the stage from the iconic festival is being donated to the museum and will be unveiled during a special presentation event taking place Tuesday, March 3.

The owner of the stage is Woodstock attendee Steve Gold. WKYC notes that Gold purchased the stage panels shortly after the festival and then used them to construct a paddleball court. He would later launch Peace of Stage, a website that sold upcycled jewelry and other collectibles that were made from pieces of the stage.
