56. L. Frank Baum Birthplace
Wizard of Oz author Lyman Frank Baum was born on this site on May 15, 1856. It is uncer- tain whether he was born in the current house or a previous building; if a previous building, it is uncertain precisely where on the property that building was located. In any case, the Baums resided here for only about two years after Lyman's birth before moving on.
