Visit the spot where Alex Haley spent much of his childhood: the home of his grandparents, Will and Cynthia Palmer. It was here on this porch that Haley likely heard the stories that inspired the now world-famous Roots: The Saga of An American Family, which earned him the 1976 Pulitzer Prize. The author is buried on the front lawn of the home, which has been restored and furnished with some of the original 1919 furniture, memorabilia and family artifacts. A state-of-the-art museum and genealogy center sits behind the home.
