Hank Aaron Childhood Home & Museum

 

 

The voice of Milo Hamilton echoes throughout the house that sits next to Hank Aaron Stadium. "It's 715. There's a new home run champion of all time and it's Henry Aaron!"

The house is Henry Aaron's childhood home. It was moved in 2010 from Toulminville where it stands today. It was originally built by Herbert Aaron, Henry's father, in 1942 and only consisted of three small rooms. Today, the house has seven rooms and is used for a lot more than just living. It is a place to relive Aaron's early life and baseball career.

Right when visitors walk in they are welcomed by Aaron's voice as he tells stories of living in Mobile and playing baseball at a young age. 

To the right of the front door is a glass display showing off Mobile's baseball traditions. A tattered faded white and blue Bears jersey and hat are displayed to show off the early professional teams in the area. Old black and white photos hang on the wall capturing baseball in Mobile in the 1900's.

The room to the left of the front door is dedicated to the Aaron family. Pieces from all of Hank's family are included in the collection; including a dress worn by Estella Aaron, Hank's mother.

As visitors progress through the museum so does Aaron's baseball career. It starts in his childhood love of the sport and local teams then moves to his first professional contract with the Negro League and finishes up with his Major League Baseball career. 

There are hundreds of pieces immortalizing the baseball hall of famer, including his Gold Glove Award from 1957, the trophy he was awarded for breaking the home run record and his original Louisville Slugger bat design just to name a few. 

The Hank Aaron Childhood Home and Museum is truly a unique part of the Mobile BayBears and of the city of Mobile and remain a fixture for years to come.

Museum Hours: Open M-F, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM and during home games. Adults - $5, Children (12 & under) - $4
