Nixon’s Birthplace

Make a point to tour the house where President Nixon was born in 1913, located on the grounds. The simple clapboard house was built by President Nixon’s father in 1912, and the family lived there until 1922. In 1990, the house became a part of the private Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace, a precursor to the current Presidential Library and Museum. The house was renovated to replicate how it would have looked when the Nixon family lived there.
