Fodor's 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.
