Don and Phil Everly (The Everly Brothers) spent their formative years in Shenandoah, Iowa, where they learned the discipline and musicianship that was integral to their success. It was in Shenandoah where their professional careers began as child stars during the Golden Age of Radio in the 1940s. They performed on the local radio stations KMA and KFNF with their parents, Ike and Margaret. In 1957, just four years after the Everly family moved from Shenandoah, Don and Phil signed with Cadence Records in Nashville and rose to world fame with their hit song, "Bye Bye Love." The Everly Brothers Childhood Home is the only historic house, museum and publicly accessible former residence of the Everly Brothers in the world. Visitors can see original furnishings, a signed guitar and other exhibit items. The home sits next to the Greater Shenandoah Historical Society Museum, which features exhibits on the Everly Brothers and Shenandoah's radio history. It is also adjacent to the Everly Brothers' 1986 homecoming concert site and memorial, the Everly Brothers plaque on the Iowa Walk of Fame and the Depot Restaurant, a restored train depot which houses one of the largest public displays of Everly Brothers memorabilia. An annual concert is held at the Everly Brothers Hertage Day in late June. A car show is held next to the house during Shenfest, the community's harvest celebration, on the fourth Saturday in September. More displays are located in the Shenandoah Historical Museum next door and at the Depot.
