Such a wonderful energy to the place. I didn't get the impression that visitors could enter the house (so I didn't) but a sign welcomed folks to take pictures of the property. I loved it, and the community garden.

A very nice little stop, nestled in an average neighborhood. Great signs, and a little donation box and library. Feel free to bring books! I bet they could use a donation or two. Just ignore the neighbors, and enjoys the lovely houses!

Such a positive place. They have a free community library in front, that I noticed some regulars at Westboro Baptist Church must have dropped devotional books into. Rainbow everything!

It is surreal to stand in the front yard of a building that stands for peace and equality for EVERYONE, with a building right across the street that stands for so much hate! A true fight against good and evil!

To add to my previous review, I should mention that the house is very welcoming of visitors. There is a sign inviting you to come on to the property to take photographs, a mailbox on the steps to leave letters/notes, and a little free library. While I was taking photos, a friendly intern came outside and offered to take my picture in front of the house.

On a more practical note, it is very easily accessible from I-70 and only took 30 minutes total to exit the highway, visit the house, and get back on the highway. Definitely worth the stop!

Such a peaceful and emotional place. Standing in front of this house and looking at the hateful messages plastered on the Westboro Baptist Church across the street is a bizarre experience, but also powerfully inspirational. Just being on the property gives such a feeling of support and hope, that I left feeling even more optimistic about the fight for equal rights than when I arrived.
