Visit the Bing Crosby House this Holiday Season

Bing Crosby House

Without realizing it, many of us know Bing Crosby’s voice exceedingly well. Crosby is one of the most famous holiday singers of all time, and his rendition of “White Christmas” is the best-selling single of all time, boasting over 50 million sales. His single “Silent Night” also makes this elite list, ranking as the third best-selling single ever with 30 million sales. This holiday season, pay homage to this American favorite by visiting the Bing Crosby House in Spokane, Washington.

The Bing Crosby House was built by the singer’s father and two uncles in 1911. Bing spent his childhood living in the home, and now it stands as a tribute to his memory with its collections. On the main floor, the home presents the Bing Crosby Collection, which includes over 200 items of significance. You can view Bing’s gold records, various trophies and awards, and even the official Academy Award he received in 1944 for his performance in Going My Way.

A visit to the house with the family is the perfect way to shed some light on your favorite Christmas songs and teach your children a bit about America’s top performers of the twentieth century. Admission is free to the public, and the house is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Here at George Gee Buick GMC, we hope your holiday season is both merry and bright.
