John Wayne Birthplace
More than a century ago, 216 S. Second St. in Winterset, Iowa, was the childhood address of John Wayne. Today, the four-room home houses the John Wayne Birthplace, a museum that celebrates the legendary actor's career and has attracted more than one million visitors to date. On display are rare photographs of Wayne, letters to him from fellow actors, and memorabilia from his films, including an eye patch he wore in True Grit .
The tour guide was very well informed, ready to answer questions and add extra information. The collection of items related to John Wayne was extensive and interesting. I was proud to show my out- of- state friends another one of Iowa's treasures.
