Ronald Reagan

Renovation of Reagan's Boyhood Home

This week in the First Light look at stories from around the state, Dixon, in North Central Illinois, is one of the communities in the state that was once home to a U.S. President. Illinois Public Radio’s Guy Stephens has the latest on an effort to save Ronald Reagan’s first boyhood home. Just a couple of years ago the Washington Post described the home as “falling apart.” Today, things look much better; but the museum’s says more needs to be done.

In our look around this state this week, First Light has this story from Illinois Public Radio’s Sean Crawford. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in downtown Springfield is on board to celebrate the Illinois bicentennial with an exhibit focused on the four prairie state residents who went on to lead the nation
