I was really surprised at what I saw. The house has been freshly painted and the museum is just the downstairs of the house. A lot of memorabilia to take in. Wasn't sure I was going to get in....make sure you knock loud so the care taker hears you. You gotta go!

You can view the first floor of the renovated home. It contains artifacts and stories about the singer from Columbus, GA. You will be led by a docent.

FYI: The doors are locked, so you must be patient and wait for the tour guide to hear you knocking at the door.
