One my all time favorite field trips that I have ever led was to meet President George Washington at his Federal House, in Tustin, California. The actor who portrays George Washington, Rev. Gary Beard, performs at numerous parades, events and schools assemblies throughout Southern California.
Even he no longer offers tours of his museum, you can still meet George Washington, along with Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln, at the front entrance of the Nixon Library on Monday, February 15 starting at 10 am.
A fascinating talk with the three presidents will follow in the magnificent White House East Room at 11:30 am.
Seating is first come, first served. The first 250 visitors will enjoy a FREE slice of cherry pie compliments of Polly’s Pies.
Please note, the regular museum galleries are currently undergoing a major renovation and are not open to the public. However, visitors will be able to tour Richard Nixon’s original birthplace, final resting places of President and Mrs. Nixon, presidential helicopter, First Lady’s gardens, and full-scale replica of the White House East Room.
Advanced registration is encouraged, but not required.
The Richard Nixon Library & Museum is located at 18001 Yorba Linda Boulevard in Yorba Linda, CA 92886.
Happy Field Tripping,
