A Journey of Faith
Retrace Billy Graham’s dynamic journey through stunning multimedia presentations, interactive kiosks, photos, and memorabilia.
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.
Ruth’s Attic Bookstore
Open Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Located inside the Billy Graham Library, browse this unique bookstore for gifts, Bibles, and Christian classics, including books written by Graham family members.
“I love the paint of words,” Ruth Bell Graham once wrote in an early poem. Her affection for literature and her devotion to God often flowed together, and she surrounded herself and her family with books filled with inspiring stories, hard-won life lessons, and deep wells of faith.
In that spirit, Ruth’s Attic is named to honor Ruth Bell Graham’s lifelong love of the printed page. The bookstore offers rare and special editions written by Billy and Ruth Graham as well as an extensive selection of Bibles.
The Memorial Prayer Garden
Take time to reflect in a peaceful setting beside the burial sites for Billy Graham and Ruth Bell Graham; George Beverly Shea and Cliff Barrows, longtime members of the Billy Graham Crusade Team; and Billie Barrows, early crusade pianist and wife of Cliff Barrows.
