*PR**ESIDENT HOMES, LIBRARIES, MONUMENTS, ETC.*
*Forward: My parents, Gene and Emily Slagle, loved to travel and
loved politically related attractions. I traveled to Ohio eight times
in the 11 years from 1996 to 2006 and took a driving trip with my
parents. in 1999 and 2006, my brother Jim joined us. We saw all 13
Presidential libraries and homes or libraries for 41 of the 43
Presidents. Additions will continue to be added to the site.
The best source I found for information about the Presidents and
homes was the book 'Homes and Libraries of the Presidents' by William G.
Clotworthy printed in March 2003. I also used Homes of the Presidents
by Bill Harris published in 1987. The latter book has several
beautiful pictures of each Presidents home from outside and inside.
