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 Reagan family subsequently moved 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.

  • I wasn’t sure what to expect from this visit. I’m a big presidential history fan and has not been to north central Illinois, so I took advantage of being close to Tampico to visit. A couple days...

  • Not sure what we expected here, but the tour was interesting and informative. Our tour guide/docent was animated, knowledgeable, and clever; a "born and raised" Tampico resident. She pointed out numerous items in the jam-packed exhibit and gift shop rooms. The period-restored 2nd floor Reagan apartment appeared well set and maintained. The bank replica restoration on the first floor was fascinating. Free-will donations accepted. Please tip big; they could use it.
  • The amount of information and artifacts, photos and history is amazing. The tour is great. It really brings you back to a time that makes you appreciate the way things were done. So much information!
