“Well prepared volunteers help you appreciate the home”

Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home
Ranked #1 of 27 things to do in Dixon

Volunteers make this home what it is. Many people put time into remodeling the home and strove to make it realistic for the time President Reagan lived there. They sought old floor plans and sent the period Sears catalog to the Reagan family to pick out what furnishings they remembered being there. That dedication to detail carries through with the volunteers who work there now who really understand President Reagan's history. I would encourage local people who have not taken the time to go through it to do so as well. As I recall there are donations accepted.

A great place to visit, with very helpful guides. The is also a nice gift shop, and nice places to eat on Dixon. As Spring goes on, the grounds should be beautiful, as the crews have been out already, spicing everything up. The home isn't ADA compliant, and cannot be made to be, because i
of restriction from the Historic
Registry, so the upper floor wouldn't be able to be viewed by wheelchair-bound persons.

If you really want to know about the home that without doubt had such an influence on "creating" Reagan. This is a must see.

Dixon loves that Ronald Reagan lived here, and Ronald Reagan was in love with Dixon. Unfortunately, we don't learn much about how Ronald Reagan became the man that he wa. What I did like was seeing a Sears house like my grandmother lived in. If we could have a comparison of a modern house to this house, then that would be a great museum.

From the minute you hit town, flags with pictures of Reagan are on lightpoles throughout city. To see where Reagan spent several years of his life, is impressive. His home is a modest one, but shows anyone can attain the highest office in the U.S. Behind the house , in the garage, is a 1914 model t owned by Reagan's father.
