Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
The Birthplace of Ronald Reagan, also known as the Graham Building, is located in an apartment on the second floor of a late 19th-century commercial building in Tampico, Illinois, United States. The building was built in 1896 and housed a tavern from that time until 1915. On February 6, 1911 the future 40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, was born in the apartment there, the family moving into a house in Tampico a few months later.

Architecturally, the two-story brick building is similar to its neighbors, all of which are part of a historic district added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

  • 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. Really nice to see the midwestern American story that began the life of the greatest leader of the free world in our lifetime. 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.
