These places all have unique and often fascinating stories to tell. Discover their owners back to the first settlers and learn about the disasters, acts of vandalism, and other historically significant events that have occurred on these historic locations. Whether you're an armchair historian or have intentions to visit every Presidential Birthplace, this book will equip you with more information than even your tour guides will know!
