A Very Repectful Tribute to a Former President and First Lady

Not worth the stop. Away from other attractions with exception of Hansom Park. Not well maintained. Outside

I have been to 2 weddings here and enjoyed both. They were both outside in the rose garden and really beautiful and from what I have heard very affordable. Only thing is no restrooms in the gardens, so you may have to run up to the gas station to use restroom after ceremony.

This is a very small area to honor our former president Gerald R Ford. it shows where he lived before he moved. the only thing here is some photos encased in glass and a couple of stautes. I mean the house has since burned down many years ago. This is a good place to get married though because my friend... More

Though the house is no longer standing, which I knew in advance, it is a beautiful site. Flowers, benches, history of Ford.

Stop if you're passing through Omaha. It is a fast and beautiful stop. Make sure you press the buttons on the gazebo displays.

I suppose if I had read "birthsite" a little more closely I would have realized that there is no longer a home there.

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
