- This is the actual house from the 1983 movie A Christmas Story.
- Due to the increasing popularity of the film, in 1997, TNT began airing a 24-hour marathon dubbed "24 Hours of A Christmas Story," consisting of the film shown twelve consecutive times beginning at 7 or 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve and ending Christmas Day.
- The actual house did not always look like the one from the film. In 2005 an investor purchased the house on ebay for $150,000, with the intention to renovate the house to look identical to the one in the film.
- In 2006 Holton-Wise co-owner John Holton was part of the construction crew who performed the renovations on the house, the museum and the gift shop. John personally performed many of the renovations on the iconic house including the exterior siding as well as the custom railings and trim we see on the porch in addition to multiple other projects in the gift shop and museum including framing, flooring and trim work.
- Since the renovations, thousands of people line up every year to tour the house and museum as well as make purchases from the gift shop.
- In September 2014 Holton-Wise co-owner James Wise sold a duplex neighboring the famous house.
- Today A Christmas Story House can be yours for $5,000,000.
