Reagan Family Home

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 28 August 2019 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

The Reagan family - Jack, Nelle, and their two sons, Neil (age 12) and Ronald (age 9), moved to Dixon and into this house on December 6, 1920. The boys attended school at South Side School, later known as South Central School, just four blocks north on Hennepin Avenue. The family lived in this house for three years. This home has been designated as a historical landmark by the Dixon Historical Preservation Commission.

Ronald Wilson Reagan was an American politician who served as the 40th president of the United States from 1981 to 1989. Prior to his presidency, he was a Hollywood actor and union leader before serving as the 33rd governor of California from 1967 to 1975. He always considered Dixon as his hometown and came back to visit quite often.

The American way of building is interesting. At least it is not monotonous when you look at the roof or many angles of that house.

An interesting old house. It's not nearly as elegant as yesterday's post.

It's just a house, and he just lived there during 2-3 years of his boyhood. But I guess it is important to some. But nice shot of it.

just finished reading your complete narrative

how ironic that he was a union leader and then broke the union by firing the air traffic controllers. i worked with a man in Little Rock who had to relocate from Texas after he was fired during that debacle.
