Christmas Story

If you are a fan of the classic holiday movie ‘A Christmas Story’ or a fan of it’s author Jean Shepherd, then watching this video is a must. See the REAL house Jean and Randy Shepherd grew up in — in good ol’ Hammond, Indiana.

This is where the stories came from – The leg lamp, the Bumpus’ hounds, the exploding furnace — This is the place it all REALLY happened! We talk to the home’s current owner and meet up with local historian Richard Lytle.

Find out how you can take a bath in Ralphie’s actual bath tub!
