My husband grew up with his mother listening to Loretta. It was a dream of his to visit the homeplace of Loretta. The cost was unbelievable-only $5. Loretta's niece gave the tour. She was a delight to talk to.

It was hard to find, but well worth it. We met a lot of wonderful people while searching. Once there I felt at home. Loretta's niece gave the tour, she is so sweet. A must see for a LL fan.

Met Herman, (Loretta's brother). He's great. The house is a step back in time. Wonderful visit. Since I live close, I've been several times and loved it each time.

Great little visit to find out how the singer grew up. This place is still like it was years ago. Old antiques, filled with memorabilia from her music career and her life. A treasure to see

If you're a Loretta Lynn fan, don't miss this inexpensive opportunity to visit her childhood home, courtesy of her brother Herman. He's the nicest guy ever and it's an interesting little tour. Stop at Webb Grocery first, and let them know you're headed that way!
