William Howard Taft National Historic Site

William Howard Taft National Historic Site Review

This Greek Revival home was the birthplace and boyhood home of Taft (1857–1930), the 27th U.S. president and a chief justice of the Supreme Court. The National Park Service, which bought the house in 1969 and spent $3 million renovating it, has furnished some rooms as they were during Taft's years there; others hold exhibits about the president's family and career. Taft's adult residence, which is privately owned, is not far away, on MacMillan Street.
