Some consider Hank Aaron to be the greatest baseball player that ever lived, and if you visit the Hank Aaron Childhood Home & Museum, you might just agree! He had an incredible life, coming from very little and never giving up, and his world record playing was an inspiration.
Hank Aaron, also known as Hammerin’ Hank, sadly passed away January 22, 2021 at the age of 86, so a visit to The Hank Aaron Childhood Home and Museum really becomes a special place to visit.
The home is now a museum, and just the building itself has a story! It's actually the original Aaron family home that was built by Herbert Aaron (Hank's dad) back in 1942.
The propery today also includes the 1962 and 1972 additions that were made to the home, which bring it to its current size. Did you know that Hank Aaron’s mother Estella, actually lived in the home from 1942 right up until 2007?
In 2008, the Aaron family home was moved from its original location to Hank Aaron Stadium, where it stands today.
Impressively, in 2013, the Hank Aaron Childhood Home & Museum was voted the 8th Best Baseball Museum in the Country – that directly speaks to the Legacy of Hank Aaron.
Whether you are a baseball fan or not, or even a Hank Aaron fan prior, you will be once you leave and that makes this attraction a must visit to anyone in Mobile. It's an inspirational story of a man who began life in Mobile, with very little to his name, and rose to the ranks of greatness.
