The King of Hollywood.

Clark Gable Birth Home and Museum

It's an exact recreation of Clark Gable's birth home, on the site of the original that was demolished in the 1960s. The museum is filled with great memorabilia, personal belongings, one of his Cadillacs, and handprints of the stars. Guided tours, and great gift shop.
