Ivy Green

Ivy Green, Birthplace of Helen Keller
Tuscumbia, Alabama, U. S. A.

Hellen Keller's birthplace is less than an hour away and I have never been there.
Our son went on an elementary class trip years ago, but my husband went with him since he works nearby.

Do you visit attractions near your home?

That is not how I envisioned Helen Keller's home. It's quite grand! I visit landmarks in and near town frequently. We are not able to take vacations right now so we do a lot of short day trips.

That's a pretty place- love the brick pavers. Not so much on landmarks, but I do visit parks and museums

You know the only times I visit places of interest near our home is when out of state family and friends come to visit. Why is that? Maybe it is something I should change.
Thank you for sharing.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

What wonderful photos to show this lovely home! I suspect most of us are guilty of ignoring those 'famous' spots near our homes. Our lives just get too busy and then we're going on vacation to look at outher 'famous' spots near someone elses home. Hmmmmm

The resting place of Florence Thompson is right up the road from me. Florence was the subject in the famous Migrant Mother portrait taken by Dorothea Lang in during the Great Depression.

Gorgeous little place!

I think we all tend to skip over attractions that are close to home. It only seems like an adventure when we're on a trip to faraway places.

Not like I should and I think it's sad that we skip our local stuff. I went to Ivy Green when I was younger but can't remember with who. Seems like it was a school field trip but if you haven't been, I guess it wasn't!

I'd love to visit this place. We do go to historic sites and events near us, just never make it to north Alabama!
