PRESIDENT HOMES, LIBRARIES, MONUMENTS, STATS, 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 monuments for 41 of the 44 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.
     In 2011 I decided to improve the web site by coping many images from the internet, adding items 51 to 60  and showing all pictures I had taken on the home page as opposed to clicking on the description to see the picture.
     Any suggestions for site improvement are welcomed (encouraged).  Please forward to e-mail address:  neslagle@hotmail.com
