President Reagan's boyhood home.

Dixon, Illinois is the boyhood home of President Ronald Reagan. He had one brother, Neil. Ronald's father nicknamed Ronald, "Dutch", because of the way his mother cut his hair as a child; it stuck with him his entire life. Dixon is located on the Illinois River and his home was a typical middle class home on a quiet street. Reagan graduated from Dixon High School before going on to college, Hollywood and the presidency. I celebrated my birthday here at a very nice restaurant. They even sent us home with a slice of turtle cheesecake for my birthday. When leaving here we will be heading for Wisconsin.
