We visited on a rainy day. Informative and nice small rose garden. I had thought there was a home/birth site to tour. We just walked around the grounds.

President Ford was a very good human being. He believed in people and improving our country. The history exhibits explain a bit about Ford and his wife, Betty. Reading the exhibits and listening to the recordings are a good tonic for what we're hearing day...More

Birth place of U.S. President Gerald R. Ford. The area is not what it once was, but the site is well maintained. Certainly worth a visit showing someone can come from humble beginnings and accomplish much.

To be clear, President Ford didn't call Omaha home. (Michigan gets the honors.) An interesting site for Presidential history buffs. There are superior gardens in town.

Not a great deal to see, so unless you have been everywhere else in Omaha, so don't be sad if you don't visit. The original house burnt down so there is a small kiosk with a few pieces of memorabilia and some concrete blocks with...More
