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.

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

Beautiful well kept garden near downtown. It's a nice place to visit. There is a larger park nearby and parts of it are a bit run down and I have been a bit intimidated by some of the people who hang out there. But, this garden is in a nice neighborhood.

I am a life long resident of Omaha, and have visited the site many times. Gerald Ford was not "One of us", as claimed in a previous review. He was born in Omaha on July 14, 1913, and left on July 29th. His entire residency in Omaha was just sixteen days! The Omaha house has been replaced by a plesant... More

History and beautiful gardens. Amazing!!! It is great to learn more about our past presidents, and to learn that he was one of ours from this city.
