John Wayne was born in a small four-bedroom house that has since been restored to its 1907 appearance. The house now stands as a museum filled with an impressive collection of John Wayne memorabilia, hundreds of photographs, and letters from famous people. His newspaper birth announcement is part of the memorabilia in the house and states "A thirteen-pound son arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Morrison Monday morning." Thirteen pounds! That large baby grew up to be a 6'4" American icon and the epitome of masculinity despite being named Marion. He is an acclaimed part of American film history.
John Wayne only lived in this house for the first three years of his life but that was enough to make the house a tourist attraction that draws in tens of thousands of visitors a year.
I suppose there aren't too many other tourist attractions in Iowa competing for this award ;)
