*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.
