Few people know that Clark Gable, the “King of Hollywood, had humble roots in rural Ohio.

This museum is actually the restored childhood home of Gable in Cadiz, Ohio where he was born on February 1, 1901. The home is furnished with its original interior, including several of Gable’s personal belongings, such as a red toboggan sled decorated with his name. There is also a classic 1954 Cadillac parked in the garage

It’s a must-see for fans of Gable, Hollywood history, or classic film.
