The Graham Family Homeplace
Tour the home Billy Graham lived in from age nine until he left for college. Meticulously restored using 80 percent of the original materials, the Graham family homeplace will give you an intimate look at Billy Graham’s roots.
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 on 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.
