I suppose if I had read "birthsite" a little more closely I would have realized that there is no longer a home there. However, the brick structure at the back of the gardens confused us a little and we wandered along the back of the property before seeing the information kiosk at the front. The gardens were well maintained, though... More

The Gerald R. Ford birthsite & gardens is a wonderful stop in Omaha if you are a History buff like me. It consists of a short self guided tour and takes about 15 minutes. It is relaxing and beautiful. Thank you kindly for reading my review - McClintock853

Very interesting spot. We really enjoyed it. There is not a lot to see so a great spot if you are pressed for time. The house itself is no longer there but a well kept grounds area. We were there in May and annuals had been recently planted in the flower beds. Unfortunately vandals had pulled up and destroyed many... More

Beautiful gardens in residential area. The outdoor displays about President Ford and Betty were interesting and informative about their lives.

These gardens are on the site of the birthplace of Gerald Ford. The house burned down and this memorial was built on the grounds. It is amazing. There is a beautiful garden and some information on Gerald and Betty Ford. Truly worth the stop.

A nice little park to mark the site of Gerald Ford’s birthplace. The shaded gardens have plants, water features (not running when I was there) and a nice kiosk that has a model of the house and information on President Ford. Street Parking and the attraction is free. You can see it in 10-20 minutes. Nice stop if you are... More

A good place to take visitors who are into historical places. Located in ahistorical neighborhood in Omaha. However the home is no longer on this site. It burned down at some time. A nice rose garden used for weddings, photos etc.

I lived a few houses away when the house burned down. Gerald Fords mom lived there when Gerald was born, I beleive she was a single lady. She soon moved away got married and Gerald took the name of his adoptive father. The house burned down in the late sixties. A lady in a wheelchair lived in the second floor,... More
