The George W. Bush Childhood Home is truly a unique place in American history. Home to two Presidents, two Governors and a First Lady, this remarkable 1950s restoration gives visitors a unique perspective of the Bush family and their legacy, insight into the restoration of this modest home and provides an interesting view of life in 1950s Midland.

This is part of history and everyone needs to learn about two of our presidents. Rather you liked them as president or not, this is history learn and share it with your children.

This house and museum was the best $5 we spent over the long July 4th weekend. Meticulously representing this period in time. This small house represented a very enjoyable thirty minutes. The staff was knowledgeable, helpful and kind.

It was closed when we showed up. So I really don't have much to say. It is a site for a virtual cache for geocachers.
