LUCY, I'M HOME!

Celoron, N.Y. is the hometown of the "First Lady of Comedy"...Lucille Ball.
It's a small town near Jamestown, N.Y. We visited there this past spring and the whole town is dedicated to her. 

 They are Lucy crazy!!

Huge photo billboards all over town,


a Lucy- Desi Museum, (that was great) 


 Desilu Studios that was part of the tour,

One of the displays was a magazine advertisement saying in the 50's you could buy a bedroom suite just like the one  Lucy and Desi had on the show!

Every year there is a Lucille Ball Comedy Festival.

These huge murals were on parking garages.



This is Lucy's childhood home. It was open for tours for many years but now is a private residence. The video below was made by the present owners:

In the video, notice the unusual painting of the garage doors, 
painted like the dress we all remember! 

The town park has a statue that was donated by a local family. A few years ago, there was a lot of talk about how the town wanted it removed because they thought it didn't look like Lucy, but it's still there!

If you ever get the chance, it's worth the visit!

  3. This is where I live! They just removed "Ugly Lucy" from the park (she will have a home in the new comedy center that is being built) and are unveiling a more flattering statue the first part of August. I am glad you enjoyed your visit to Jamestown NY!
