Birthplace of Amelia Earhart


Amelia Earhart was born in her maternal grandparents' home in Atchison, Kansas. Amelia's family lived in several towns during her childhood, and her father's job as a railroad agent kept him and the family on the move. They traveled often, instilling in Amelia a love for adventure and new places. Her many winters spent with her grandparents were a stable and happy time fondly remembered by the aviator. The house is now a museum.
