Landmark Status for Reagan's Boyhood Home

Wednesday, 30 January 2002 12:00 AM

The bill would authorize Reagan's home to be purchased with donated or appropriated funds at its fair market value. The home would be managed by the Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home Foundation in conjunction with the National Park Service.

The Congressional Budget Office has estimated the bill's price tag at about $700,000 over the next two years. Of that amount, $400,000 would be used to buy the site and remaining $300,000 would be used to complete a general management plan, which would define the role and responsibility of the parties involved in maintaining the site.

Reagan was born on Feb. 6, 1911 in Tampico, Ill. In 1920, his family moved to Dixon.

The boyhood home was restored and refinished in 1984 by the foundation and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It attracts about 20,000 visitors every year.

Reagan was the only U.S. president ever born in Illinois.
