Presidential Museums, Birthplaces, Monuments and Historic Sites to Visit – Part I

TR Robertson — Each of the former Presidents of the United States has numerous museums, homes and other historic sites travelers can add to their list of places to visit when going to various states in the U.S. Many of these places are extremely interesting and amazing as you can step back in time in the homes, parks and historic sites as you go into their former places of residence or birth, viewing the actual furniture or representations from their time period, seeing the actual clothing they and members of their family wore and seeing documents and artifacts from the past that was a part of our American history. Just following visits to sites dedicated to Abraham Lincoln would fill a summer vacation.

One unusual site to visit is in in Croaker, Virginia, and is the site of 43 18-to-23-foot-tall heads of 43 of the U.S. Presidents. Originally commissioned by Everette Newman as a $10 million project for a park in Williamsburg, sculpted by David Adickes, the project closed in 2004 and was moved to the farm of Howard Hankins in 2010. The sculptures need repair and were recently featured in a news segment in the CBS Sunday Morning news show.

The following is Part I of an alphabetical list of the states where these Presidential sites can be found, including the address of the Presidential site. For more specific information about the place listed, Google the name of the site and detailed information will come up to fill you in about what you and your family can view, as well as more detailed directions to the site. Wikipedia also has a wealth of information about the Presidential site. If you are traveling to any of the states listed in Part I & II, add some of these historic sites to your lists of places to visit.
