"We're Shoeless on a shoestring!"
In addition to the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Baseball Library, be sure and visit Joe's grave site where visitors leave baseballs, photos, notes and other mementos; the Shoeless Joe Jackson Memorial Ball Park where Joe first played baseball; and Shoeless Joe Jackson Plaza where a life-size bronze statue of Joe stands on a base made of bricks from the old Comiskey Ball Park in Chicago. To visit these sites, see the Main Menu under "Directions."
The kitchen at the museum reflects the 1940s and 1950s era when the Jackson's lived in the house. The cabinets, sink and counter top are all original, as well as the windows and woodwork throughout the house.
