When we found out we were going to be staying in Tuscumbia for a few days, I checked on-line to see what "tourist attractions" might be in the area. I was excited to find out that it was the birth place of Helen Keller and that her home was available to tour.
The girl in Helen's dining room - the same dishes Helen ate off of. Who cannot forget the scene of Helen walking around the table grabbing food off of everyone's plates. We had a great tour guide - the rooms were actually gated off but she asked the girl if she wanted her picture taken by the table. The girl goes in, I snap the picture and the guide tells her to come out quickly...then she whispers to me "usually you have to be blind to be allowed in there to have your picture taken".
