What a great tribute to one of our most beloved and honored presidents. I think he'd be proud of the presentation put on by his home town in honor of his memory.

The small town values of strength and freedom are something that the rest of the world is envious of and the country should notice and be proud. Great legacy of a great man.
Must-see for every Reagan fan. Informative tour. Very friendly and welcoming.
