While I was on vacation in Pennsylvania,
I had the pleasure of visiting the
Jimmy Stewart Museum in Indiana, PA.
It is a large museum dedicated solely to the actor.
He was born & raised here.
His career spanned the years from 1932 to 1991.
He won an Academy award for his role in
"The Philadelphia Story" in 1940.
He starred in a total of 81 movies and numerous TV appearances.
Some of the most famous films were:
"Mr. Smith Goes to Washington",
"It's a Wonderful Life",
A movie camera at the entrance of the museum...
A poster of his commemorative stamp...
That's me with "Harvey"...
The home where he grew up. This is just a short distance from the museum...
A view taken from the end of the street where his home is...
If you ever get a chance to visit here, this is a very well done and thought out museum. Plan to spend some time here, there is so much to see. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I did!
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean
