An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Saturday, repeating until October 26, 2019

Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom is a hero here in Lawrence County. As one of the first Americans to fly into space, we are glad that he called Mitchell his home. He is one of three astronauts from Lawrence County.

The house that he grew up in is still here –  opening its doors for space lovers, historians and families to go back in time for a little bit and see how this astronaut grew up.


Open Saturdays
11:00 am – 3:00 pm
May 25 to October 26
