C'mon to Rosemary Clooney's House

"C'mon a My House," Rosemary Clooney's first big hit, was recently featured in the promotions for HBO's new series Big Love. If you'd like to visit Rosemary's actual house, now you can. Since 1980 Rosemary called 106 Riverside Drive her home. Located on the banks of the Ohio River in historical Augusta, Kentucky, this was her retreat from the demands of her career and a haven for rest between performances all over the world.

In September 2005, Clooney's family and The Rosemary Clooney House, Inc. opened the house to the public as the Rosemary Clooney Museum. In addition to numerous photos displayed throughout the home, visitors will see memorabilia from the Clooney Sisters and Tony Pastor days, movie lobby cards, costumes, posters, movie scripts, and more. The house also holds the largest collection of White Christmas memorabilia in the world.

Hours of operation are Saturdays 10 am to 5 pm and Sundays 1 pm to 5 pm. You can also schedule a tour weekdays by appointment. For more information, visit The Rosemary Clooney House web site online.
