Welcome to Hoover Presidential Foundation
The Hoover Presidential Foundation is a nonprofit support group for the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library-Museum and National Historic Site in West Branch, Iowa, just east of Iowa City. The Foundation began as the Hoover Birthplace Society in 1939. It is a membership organization which sponsors events during the year, including Hoover's Hometown Days, the annual August celebration of the birth of Herbert Hoover, the only Iowa native to become president. Other events include various weekends throughout the summer with 1880's games, crafters, and costumed interpreters.
Members of the Foundation help sponsor special exhibits, building and renovation projects, and scholarships and programs that help bring history alive to students of all ages. Foundation members play an important part in making the Herbert Hoover Library-Museum and National Historic Site an Iowa treasure. CLICK HERE to learn how you can join this esteemed group.
