This was a great place to visit. Our tour guide did a wonderful job talking about the history of the home and then we had time to walk around the homestead. It was a humbling experience and one of the highlights of my trip to...More

We saw the signs for this on our way to Wichahpi Commemorative Stone Wall. We stopped by on the way back. I really never considered myself a History buff and really don't like Museums. This was so special and so worth visiting. I can't believe...More

We went to see The Miracle Worker play. It was really good. However, it was extremely crowded and the bleachers were not easy maneuver. With the late start time, 8:00pm the play was over at 10:15. Too late for families with young children. The yellow...More

The wife and I decided to travel over to see Helen Keller' birth place while we had some downtime today. Really was neat seeing some historical items and learning more of an amazing woman. Highly recommend if you get a chance to visit to go.

Enjoyed touring the house and the grounds. The play was very good and the actors and actresses were great. The only bad thing is the bugs, take insect repellant!

We enjoyed our visit to the house. It's much smaller than the one you see in the movie. But it's still cool to see the "cabin", the water pump and more. The price is very reasonable. Loved it.

House was wonderful! Actresses who played Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan were very good; others were ok. Always wanted to make this trip; was glad I did, but would not return. Helen Keller was a very interesting person, as was Anne Sullivan. Note: you need...More

My husband and I were surprised in how much we enjoyed Helen Kellers birthplace. We wandered the grounds for over an hour and even bought tickets for the play put on by the local people. We really enjoyed out time here.

This place with the play was an awesome experience. Helen Keller come to life before our eyes and helps you really understand the obstacles she overcame and the people that helped her. It made a lasting impression on me.

You don't need to be too dressy I wore slacks (not jeans) and a nice shirt. My friend wore a casual denim dress. W both felt that we were appropriately dressed.
