Welcome to Gaither Family Resources… Gloria Gaither’s eclectic gift shop, boutique and cozy café!
Since the simpler days of the Gaither Trio, Gloria always dreamed of having a place where visitors could come, have a good cup of coffee, listen to music, seek out hard-to-find resources, and have a pleasant shopping experience in a beautiful environment. In April of 1996, Gloria’s dream was realized when Gaither Family Resources first opened their doors. Gaither Family Resources was created to be a place of community; all the while providing an incredible selection of books, gifts, art, décor, creative toys and plenty of Homecoming music! It is a pleasure to welcome visitors traveling from all over the globe to Bill and Gloria’s hometown of Alexandria, Indiana.
Guests are invited to leisurely browse through our beautifully decorated “Life Centers” where you will find hand-picked items to meet you right where you are in life. Visitors are encouraged to curl up in a big comfy chair and read through a book while sipping on a cup of hot tea or coffee. Or, have a seat in one of the wicker rocking chairs in our video corner. Many guests find themselves tapping their toes and singing along… which we certainly encourage!
Pure and Simple Restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch and farm kitchen supper. We also provide scrumptious buffets for business meetings and groups, and host special dinner theater events in The Common Place and in Studio C, where many Homecoming videos were recorded.
Our Ice Cream Parlor, features Gaither Premium Brand Ice Cream. Specialty ice cream sundaes like Gloria’s Raspberry Cake, Bill’s Campfire S’Mores, and Mark Lowry’s Feelin’ Nutty, along with our 16 favorite flavors, are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
The Gaither Experience traces the 50 plus year history of Bill and Gloria Gaither’s music. From humble beginnings on a small Indiana farm to vast international acclaim, the Gaither’s songs, books and recordings have been enjoyed by audiences around the world! You’ll not want to miss the experience of touring the studios where many of your favorite songs and Homecoming videos were recorded, or viewing Bill and Gloria’s wide array of awards, honors, and citations. Tours are offered daily and can be arranged by calling ahead.
We invite you to experience the warm, friendly atmosphere of Gaither Family Resources. So, please join us for a visit to Shop, Dine and Tour… we know you’ll be glad you did!
