Charles Lindbergh House and Museum

Charles Lindbergh House and MuseumCharles Lindbergh had the pleasure of growing up in Little Falls, MN where he enjoyed the outdoor lifestyle of the area. At a very young age, Lindbergh showed interest in aviation. He dreamed of becoming a pilot one day. He attended Little Falls High School although he was not a particularly good student at the time. Lindbergh was much more interested in mechanical things like cars, farm equipment, and motorcycles. Luckily students who wanted to work on the farm could leave school and still receive full academic credit. Lindbergh left classes to run his family farm only to return to receive his diploma in 1918. Lindbergh continues to run the farm for the next two years.

Charles Lindbergh's 1927 transatlantic solo flight from New York to Paris launched an aviation revolution and made him one of the most famous Americans in the 20th century.
