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.
