What an absolute Delight to see a restored home that Herbert Hoover lived in when he was a kid. A lot of original pieces in the house and the ones that weren't original were of the same time period And close to what they would have had.

I will go back if I make it back out there.
I never got to go inside. Google should update that this place is closed during the month of January. I went there after looking at the times and days Google said this was open. The sign on the place said it was closed during January.
