Richard Bernard Skelton was born July 18, 1913 inside his Vincennes home which is located directly across from the Red Skelton Performing Arts Center & Museum of American Comedy. His birthplace has been purchased by the Red Skelton Foundation to preserve an important part of his life but additional funds are needed to restore the home.
