Long Description:

Richard Nixon was a U.S. Congressman, U.S. Senator, Vice President under Dwight Eisenhower and the 37th President of the United States, serving from 1969 to 1974. Nixon's many accomplishments while in office - ending the Vietnam War, visiting communist China and establishing diplomatic relations, beginning the Middle East peace process, etc., are unfortunately overshadowed by the Watergate scandal. Nixon remains the only president to resign from office.

The house stands exactly where it did when built by Nixon's father. It is now part of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Birthplace. The home is open for brief guided tours. Information about the Library, including hours and admission prices is HERE.
