President's early growing up homes are often preserved and made into museum sites. Wonder which ones will evolve in Hawaii? Maybe just a plaque in a hotel, but we Americans tear down old hotes, etc. rather than preserve them like Europeans do.
In Newberg, Oregon, 15 miles from me, there is a "Hoover House". I guess he spent six years there with an aunt and uncle. Hoover-Minton House
papa wins. Abilene, Kansas . . . it was just 20 miles away from my house. we visited often to see his presidential museum and there was also an old Abilene town that was set up to look like the wild west days. it. was. awesome.
As I looked at his 1961 home, it made me think of my visit to Hawaii in 1960, shortly before my 6th birthday. The house reminds me of a house where some friends of ours lived. My little brother turned 4 while we were there. My older brother and sister got to go to the beach every day, but my little brother and I had to stay at Waikiki Village with our grandmother and swim at the pool there. I still remember nap time, when my brother and I would try to sneak out of the bedroom, but Grandma always would catch us. It was quite a vacation. 8 of us rode in a Coupe Deville Cadillac from Iowa to California and back. Besides flying to Hawaii, we saw the Petrified Forest, and went to Disneyland, Marineland, and Knotts Berry Farm, among other things.
