Next on my tour of must see buildings of North Carolina is the Billy Graham Library. Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Billy Graham Library is a 40,000 sqft (roughly 3,700 sqm) library, bookstore, cafe, and museum dedicated to the famous Baptist Evangelist Billy Graham and his now deceased wife Ruth Graham. Inside the building is a small library with several of the books Billy Graham and his family have written. There`s also a book store called "Ruth`s Attic" that have many of the same books that are in the small library, and plenty of Bibles and other religious materials for sale. Besides the bookstore and small library there is also a dairy bar that can seat up to 140 people that sales ice cream, cookies and cake, salads, sandwiches, and Billy Graham`s favorite - world famous North Carolina BBQ, which can be reserved for parties. In the small museum there are plenty of multimedia presentations of the life of Billy Graham including interactive kiosks, photos, and other memorabilia from throughout his ministry. There`s even a mechanical talking cow that talks to visitors about the life of Billy Graham. Outside the building there is a large prayer garden where people can find some quiet and reflect upon their life. Billy Graham`s late wife, Ruth Graham, is buried here and it will also be the resting place of Billy Graham when he eventually passes also. On the same property of the Library is Billy Graham`s childhood home which has been fully restored and is open to tours. The house itself was in a dilapidated state when the restoration began and only 80% of the house could be saved. It was dismantled, moved, and rebuilt using the materials on the site where the library stands today. So if you`re looking for a very religious place to come and visit on your vacation, then come on down to the Billy Graham Library and remember the lives of a great man and woman of God; even if you`re not Baptist.
