Plan a Visit

Visit Dr. Bob’s

The first thing you’ll see when you reach Dr. Bob’s Home is the twelve stone and wooden steps that lead up to the front porch. To the left of the porch rests the massive stone monument that is inscribed with Dr. Bob and Anne Smith’s name. To many visitors, the steps and stone plaque symbolizes the foundation of A.A.

Experiencing Dr. Bob’s Home is not something easily described; you simply must come here and discover it for yourself. Only then will you know. Only then will you realize that you have finally come home.


Dr. Bob’s Home and gift shop is open to visitors every day from Noon – 3 p.m. seven days a week. (except Christmas).
