Jackie Robinson was an amazing person. His boyhood home?....not so much. As a curiosity you can go by if you are close but that's it.

This landmark is the childhood home of Jackie Robinson, the first black player to break modern baseball's color barrier. Jackie's mother bought the house in 1920 after moving from Cairo, GA with Jackie and his 4 siblings. The Robinson family was the African-American family on Pepper Street. This house is in a residential area (literally people are living in the houses surrounding his house). The address of his house is 121 Pepper Street. When you are looking for his house, you won't find it. It was torn down in the early 1970's. However, on the ground in front of 123 Pepper Street is where the plaque dedicated to Jackie Robinson can be found. The plaque reads: "Jackie Robinson resided on this site with his family from 1922 to 1946.” The house is not taken care of, the grass is long, and there are cameras all over the property.
