Did you know that 8 of our U.S. Presidents were from our great state of OHIO? Warren G. Harding, William Howard Taft, William Henry Harrison, Rutherford B. Hayes, Benjamin Harrison, James A. Garfield, William McKinley and Ulysses S. Grant. Today we are privileged to visit the MCKINLEY PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY AND MUSEUM located in Canton, Ohio. William McKinley was our 25th President and was known for his "front porch" campaigning for the presidency and was the third President to be assassinated. The museum boasts artifacts and is the resting place of President McKinley. The museum also offers an interactive and innovative science and history museum complete with a planetarium. Our group will enjoy a behind the scenes tour of the McKinley Monument along with a guided tour and planetarium show.
Who knows .. maybe one of our 8 Presidents or any one of our First Ladies would have enjoyed having lunch at LA PIZZARIA in Canton, Ohio. We'll never know if they would have, but we sure will. Our family-style sit down meal features a lovely dinner salad, parmesan crusted chicken breast, roasted potatoes, penne pasta, fresh beans in oil and garlic, strawberry amaretto cake and a beverage.
The only place in the country dedicated to sharing and showcasing the importance of our nation's First Ladies is THE NATIONAL FIRST LADIES LIBRARY also known as the FIRST LADIES NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE and also located in Canton, Ohio. Our group will view museum exhibits about the lives and the legacies of America's First Ladies and visit the home of Ida and William McKinley. Please note that todays' date is the birthday of Nancy Reagan (July 6, 1921), the wife of our 40th President.
