    It's interesting to see the roots. Contrary to what you may read here, the neighborhood is not scary and dangerous. It's only about a mile off the Skyway and well worth a quick detour. There are no gu...  more »

    City that is described by guidebooks as desolate, sad and abandoned ... well actually there is not much to see or do. Fairly Hardy, hardly anyone around, some abandoned houses and crumbling, so almost from ghost town! The House where Michael Jackson is in this sunny place with someone walking around like zombies. The House is well kept, as well as the garden. Obviously the memorial stone, and then the various items left by fans, the inscriptions, dedications. Particular visit, opportunity to take some pictures. For the rest nothing.

    Such a huge fan, MICHAEL I LOVE YOU!!!!! The house is really well kept and maintained despite the rest of the town being pretty run down. I can't believe this is what he came from. I couldn't help but imagine what his life would have been like if his talent was never discovered.All in all, it is amazing to stand in the same place as the King of Pop.

    On my home from Chicago my partner and I decided to visit this iconic home. While driving to find the home it was sad to see how the area is now ran down. Nonetheless, we wanted to see the Jackson home. It is one of the smallest houses I've ever seen. I am not sure about this but it looks like a shotgun house where you can stand in the front door and look straight and see to the backdoor. The house is gated and looks well kept with statures in the front yard. I think this is defiantly a place that is worth visiting. I wish there were tours offered I would have loved to see what the inside looks like.

    The Jackson house harbors history. Awesome history. Michael, why did you have to leave us so soon? Wish you were still here with us.

    I loved it so much because he was blessed by God and that's why he's the king of pop
