It is Revealed Why Billy Graham’s House is Up for Sale: To Help Pay Medical Costs for Granddaughter’s Illness

Daniel Whyte III says this is a noble reason for selling the home but if someone who is thankful to God for the Billy Graham ministry could donate $1 million dollars to take care of Billy Graham’s granddaughter so the house can stay in the family and the ministry, that would be greatly appreciated. Contact Franklin Graham, Anne Graham Lotz, or the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

The home of the late “pastor to presidents” is for sale.

The late evangelist Billy Graham and his wife, Ruth Bell Graham, who died in 2007, bought the Montreat, North Carolina, house in the 1940s because it was “right across the street from my grandparents,” a press release from their daughter, Ruth Graham, stated.

“I was born during the time my family lived in the house,” she said. “The Los Angeles Crusades and [my father’s] tour of England happened during those years. It is where it all began.”

The home, which has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, is listed for $599,000 and has been used in recent years as a vacation rental, “allowing guests to experience the Grahams’ young family life through a collection of original furnishings, books, photos, and mementos,” the release states.

“With two levels of living,” it continues, “the comfortable and well-maintained home is within walking distance to Montreat Conference Center and close to several picturesque walking trails and streams.”

Located at 198 Mississippi Road in Montreat, the former Graham residence is owned by The Original Place, LLC. Ruth Graham serves as its president and has said she is the property’s sole owner, according to the Asheville Citizen Times.
