Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home

Dixon , IL

Visitors to the Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home are transported back in time when they walk in the front door of the home where the 40th President and his family lived in the early 1920s. The home has been fully restored with furnishings of the period and knowledgeable tour guides share stories about the house and the family. See the room that young Ronald shared with his brother Neil, discover the secret hiding place for his pennies, and so much more. Stroll the grounds and explore the Visitor Center, next door, where a video with footage of President Reagan is shown. Shop for treasures in our well-stocked Gift Shop and enjoy four rooms with photos, quotes and other information in the Reagan Legacy Timeline. An added bonus is the welcoming, dedicated staff of volunteers who will be waiting to share the stories, facts and exhibits about Dutch Reagan’s formative years. Admission $5.00.

Every visitor receives:

  • Informative Guided Tours of the home where the Reagan Family lived
  • Visitor Center—4 rooms of photos, quotes and more in our Presidential Timeline and a 9 minute video
  • Gift Shop
  • Reagan Memorial Park
  • Barn and Model T for viewing and remembering
  • Flower & vegetable garden filled with heritage plants
  • Referrals to other Reagan related sites in the area upon request

"In closing, let me thank you, the American people, for giving me the great honor of allowing me to serve as your president. When the Lord calls me home, whenever that day may be, I will leave with the greatest love for this country of ours and eternal optimism for its future. I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead."

-Ronald Reagan
