Childhood Home Foundation
The Everly Brothers Childhood Home is the only house museum dedicated to the Everly family and its renowned duo.
The small 20 x 15 Henry Field cabin (KFNF) is a testament to their humble beginnings and ultimate achievement of the American dream. It includes a jukebox of Everly albums, a photo opp with Don and Phil stand-ups, furnishings original to their life in Shenandoah and a signed guitar. Its collection includes photos of the house restoration process, including its relocation, and the original autographed banner held by Don and Phil standing in front of their former home from 1986.
The house is located near the Shenandoah Historical Museum and the Depot Deli that houses the largest public display of Everly Brothers memorabilia in the world. The Depot has multiple autographed photos, illustrations, school yearbooks, guitars and more.
Don and Phil Everly spent their formative years in Shenandoah, Iowa, where they learned the discipline and musicianship that was integral to their success. It was in Shenandoah where their professional careers began as child stars during the Golden Age of Radio in the 1940s. In 1957, just four years after they left the small Iowa town, The Everly Brothers rose to world fame with "Bye Bye Love." Listen.
Shenandoah continues to celebrate the success of the duo and invite you to the annual Heritage Day concert. View our aerial video now.
