Ronald Reagan's boyhood home. Boyhood home of Ronald Reagan

This is the boyhood home of Ronald Reagan, or actually, one of several. His family lived at several locations in Dixon. This one is done up to look as it was. Pennants are even on the wall in his room symbolizing his life.

[Steven Cook, 11/08/2004]

The "Reagan Way" sign explains that Hennepin Avenue was often walked by the young RR to get to downtown Dixon. Landmarks along the road -- Ronnie's grade school, library, historical museum, and church -- played a vital role in the development of his character.
