We decided after looking at Taylors Falls to head on south back into Iowa so here again Charlotte was looking at the AAA book on things to see and do in Iowa and she read about President Herbert Hoover and that his birth place was in Iowa. So we discussed how we rely knew very little about him so we decided to go there and look it over. When we got there we were hungry and was looking for a place to eat of course not being familiar with the area we saw a Quiznos sub sandwiches that was affiliated with a gas station and pulled into eat, after words we drove over to the place where Herbert Hoover was born, guess what it was on the edge of town called West Branch where there were several places to eat. We found that he was the first president born west of the Mississippi River, and that his dad was a blacksmith and died at a young age, his mother also died verily young age when Herbert Hoover was nine years old were then he was separated from his siblings and went to live with his aunt and uncle in Oregon never to return until he died and was buried on a hill overlooking his home. It was very interesting walking through the historical village and seeing how things were back in those days.
