“It’s beautiful.”This is where, Andrea tells me, Taylor Swift was brought home from the hospital in, well, 1989—I guess everyone knows the year of Taylor’s birth by now.The split-rail fence that’s still standing—Scott and Andrea built that themselves. Just a few years back, Swift was so excited about relocating to New York City—it was the creative basis for —but when she’s in the city now, within a couple of days, there is a circus of photographers outside her apartment building.“But that kind of happens everywhere,” she says.To be clear: I’m not saying the people in this church aren’t aware that Scott and Andrea’s kid turned into, you know, —it’s hilarious to watch the flower girls try to keep it together, and the nuns seem pretty jazzed, too—but that’s not the story today.

Returning to the place where you grew up can be a bit of a mind-bender for anyone, and Swift is no different.
During a car ride earlier in the day, she excitedly pointed out landmarks: the creek where she and Britany used to play as kids; a weathered tree house in the front yard of the former Maack family home; the piney woods she and her friends used to think were haunted.“It’s such a surreal, emotional thing,” Swift says.
