The VIPP Report: Muhammad Ali’s childhood home ready for tours

Special from Sherlene Shanklin, WHAS11 Television, ABC, Louisville, KY

Ali's childhoodhome

Work is almost complete on the childhood home of Cassius Clay aka Muhammad Ali.  The Louisville native’s home located at 33rd and Grand Avenue has been restored to when the “Greatest” and his family lived in the West Louisville home.

The restoration is now complete and the only thing to do is move in the furniture says Rev. Charles Elliott, founder of Jesus and a Job.  They help restore the Clay home.  This will be all completed in time for the public dedication on Sunday, May 1st, which is just days prior to the Kentucky Derby.  Fans visiting Louisville will have another place to visit while in town.

I’m awaiting official notification on the cost of the tour but as soon as I get it I will file another report.
