Doing some house work at the Reagan visitor center
A crew from Bob Ward’s Construction worked Thursday on siding the Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home visitor center. During the past year, more than 50 improvement projects have been completed at the site, including work on the house, visitors center, parking lot and memorial park, in an effort to smooth out the rough edges on the historic house and surrounding property. The home is open from April 1 to Oct. 31 at 816 Hennepin Ave. Its hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays. The home is closed on Mondays. Call 815-288-5176, go to reaganhome.org or find the home on Facebook for more information or to make a donation to the maintenance fund.
