Graham Family Homeplace
At home on the Graham family dairy farm
When Billy Graham was nine years old, his family moved into a two-story brick Colonial house on Park Road, which at the time was in the outskirts of Charlotte, N.C. For Billy and his three siblings, the best thing about it was indoor plumbing—they no longer had to bathe in a washtub on the back porch. That home—including many original elements—has been reconstructed on the campus of the Billy Graham Library, just four miles from the old Graham homestead
Several thousand bricks and all the first story wood flooring are among many original building materials used in the restoration process. The interior features some original furnishings as well as authentic appliances, furniture and fascinating memorabilia from the Graham family.
