Visitor Tips and News About Birthplace of Oprah Winfrey
Fun to stop at if you're in the area, but it is really is just a sign by a church.[Claros Clan, 08/23/2013]
We'll just have to imagine little baby Oprah, sitting in her crib, interviewing her dolly or teddy bear.
The birthplace of Oprah is just a large sign in front of a small, overgrown lot. But the church where she first performed for an audience still stands.
The site is actually a little over 2 miles from town.[eric, 09/15/2011]
Home where she was born and lived until age six. If you've read her book or heard her talk about it, this is where a lot of her child molestation traumas took place. Looking at this house, it's hard to believe that America's soon-to- be first African-American Billionaire lived HERE. A message of hope.[Gigi Tanksley, 10/20/2000]
