Helen Keller | Tuscumbia, AL

I was raised in North Alabama and didn’t take advantage of half the things around me.  At one point my mom lived right down the street from Helen Keller’s birthplace.

It’s hard to believe that I have never been to visit before now.  I guess as a kid these things didn’t seem interesting, as a matter of fact while we were on our way our youngest asked “do we have to go? And do I have to listen to her tell us all about it? Finally she asked could she just stay in the car?”  Funny thing about it was as soon as she got out of the car, the place is so beautiful she immediately became interested!

I will not go into all the history here, but you can learn a lot from their website. The same script given to us and the pictures too.

Im glad we took the time to take the girls to see it.  Needless to say they loved it!

  1. Sullivan arrived at Keller’s house in March 1887, and immediately began to teach Helen to communicate by spelling words into her hand, beginning with “d-o-l-l” for the doll that she had brought Keller as a present.
