The Richard Nixon Centennial is also celebrated as a website at: http://www.nixon100.org“I was born in a house my father built…”
and from that modest house in Yorba Linda, California grew the child who would become one of the most consequential men of his time: Richard Nixon.
Over the course of his remarkably full life, Richard Nixon would know some of the greatest successes any man, in any age, has known. He would also experience more than any one man’s share of deep disappointments.
A century after he was born, you are invited to explore the extraordinary life and legacy of the patriot, president, and peacemaker
who was born in that humble house his father built: the 37th President of the United States, Richard Nixon.
