A Christmas Story House has two FREE parking lots and FREE street parking on the streets in front of and directly adjacent to the property. Please see map below.

A couple of residents adjoining A Christmas Story House run PAID parking on their property.  They will often try to wave you into their lots even though there is still plenty of free parking.  A Christmas Story House is not affiliated with these operations.

When arriving at A Christmas Story House, we recommend looking for FREE parking in either of our lots or on the street before paying to park.
