    Fantastic read, Annette. I was in Indiana, PA for a quick 30 minute visit for work, and at the last minute decided to read up on the town. Amazingly, I discovered the Jimmy story and found your article. I was able to get to his house and snap a couple of photos of my own. Incredible, in that other than the Jimmy Stewart street sign, you would have no idea of the house’s incredible history. I’ll be back to visit the museum for sure. Thank you for what you do. Scott
