Red Skelton Birthplace

Richard Bernard Skelton was born July 18, 1913 inside his Vincennes home which is located directly across from the Red Skelton Performing Arts Center & Museum of American Comedy. His birthplace has been purchased by the Red Skelton Foundation to preserve an important part of his life but additional funds are needed to restore the home. Donors who would like to be a part of preserving and presenting the Red Skelton life story may contact: Vincennes University for the Red Skelton Performing Arts Center Project at 812.888.4850 or Fax, 812.888.5942
