Jackie Robinson's Home

Jackie Robinson’s mother, Mallie Robinson, bought the house in 1920. She moved in with 16 month old Jackie and her 4 other children. They were the first African-American family on Pepper Street.

The Robinson house was torn down in the early 1970’s.

Today, a plaque in the sidewalk marks the site. It reads: “Jackie Robinson resided on this site with his family from 1922 to 1946.”
