“Gerald R Ford's birthplace, some clarifications.”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

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 The Omaha house has been replaced by a plesant little memorial garden, which has just undergone much needed improvements.

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.

“History”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

It's a nice place to visit. Although the house isn't still located here there is a model of the house on site. Just be aware if you go a little to the east a couple blocks the neighborhood isn't exactly a safe place to be.

“Simple and informational, pretty garden.”
Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

The birthplace home burned down and has been replaced with a garden and conservation center. There is also a small building with mementos and pictures. It is used often for weddings and photography. Nice side trip and close to downtown Omaha.
