Celoron, New York: Lucille Ball's Childhood Home

You have to admire the residents of this house at 59 Lucy Lane in Celoron, NY, located just west of Jamestown near Chautauqua Lake.

One of the legendary figures in television, Lucille Ball, grew up in this structure. She wasn't born here - that was relatively nearby at 69 Stewart Ave. in Jamestown. But this was the family homestead.

The house has moved along to other owners over the years. The current ones don't have tours for you to set foot in Lucy's old room or anything, so don't knock on the front door. But they do show their respect for the previous owner. If you look carefully, you'll see that the garage is decorated to look like one of Lucy's polka-dot dresses from the television show, "I Love Lucy."

Genius can turn up just about anywhere, including Celoron.
