Gerald Ford Birthplace Mini-Museum

Field review by the editors.

Omaha, Nebraska

Future President Leslie King, whose mother later remarried and changed his name to Gerald Ford, spent his first 16 days of life in this corner of Omaha. The house was later destroyed by fire. After Ford became famous, the empty lot was turned into a garden with a bust of Ford, a fountain and plaza. A small gazebo displays Ford mementoes, including his golf clubs.

A marble birthplace slab is engraved with Ford's most famous phrase, "our long national nightmare is over."
