I would think that the county/city/state would have something better to show of Oprah's home place. There isn't much there. But interesting.

I spent about a year in Kosciusko and, frankly, my skin still crawls every time I hear, speak or type the name. Oprah hasn't "invested" money in this place because it isn't worthy. She didn't have good experiences here and neither will you. Skip it...More

We went quite a bit out of our way to see Oprah's birthplace which turned out to be a sign. There is a church nearby that notes that is the place where she had her first audience.
