AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Actually, the little boy who was born here on July 14, 1913 was named Leslie King, Jr. It was not until his parents divorced and he was adopted by his stepfather that his name became Gerald Ford. The house no longer stands, but a small kiosk contains several of the 38th president’s personal items. A lovely rose garden dedicated to Betty Ford, a fountain and numerous benches inspire reflection on Gerald Ford’s life. Busts of the President and First Lady keep watch over the grounds that are open from sunrise to sunset.
