“We can’t wait to welcome back individuals, churches, and tour groups,” said David Bruce, executive vice president of the Billy Graham Library and the newly opened Billy Graham Archive and Research Center.
This is the first opportunity for visitors to take the updated Journey of Faith tour. A special new exhibit chronicling Billy Graham’s “final journey” features events surrounding the evangelist’s death in 2018. “The real and lasting focus of this special display is on a believer’s eternal life in Jesus Christ,” said Bruce.
The tour also offers a glimpse into Billy and Ruth Bell Graham’s home life in the North Carolina mountains. “You’ll step right into a replica of the Grahams’ living room,” Bruce explained. “It’s a reflection of the heart of Ruth Graham, who projected such a genuine heart for Jesus.”
While visiting the property, guests can walk through the Graham family homeplace where Billy Graham grew up, browse Ruth’s Attic bookstore, and visit the gravesites of Billy and Ruth Graham in the Memorial Prayer Garden.
