2300 Jackson Street

In honour of Michael Jackson I went to visit his childhood home in Gary, Indiana. Terri Stevens and several other family members of mine also came along with me. It was definitely a somber experience. There was a gentle and cool rain that was present during our entire visit. Many admirers of The Jacksons have placed hundreds of items around the house to memorialize the life of Michael Joseph Jackson.
