Things To Do

Decide what to see and do during your visit.


Go for the Day or Stop Along the Way

West Branch, Iowa is easy to get to— just a third of a mile north of Interstate 80, exit 254— and easy to get around. 

More Than Just a Historic House

Like the small town of the 31st president's early childhood, Herbert Hoover National Historic Site may be explored on foot in less than a day. Buildings from President Hoover's boyhood stand side by side with monuments to his achievements. The president's modest birthplace, his presidential library, and final resting place together commemorate what Hoover called "the unbounded opportunity of American life."
