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

A beautiful garden now sits on this site where the house once stood. There is a model of the original house along with a fountain with columns. A wonderful place for wedding pictures or engagement photos. Just think that when visiting...you are standing on the...More
