Young America’s Foundation Press Release

Young America’s Foundation (YAF) is excited to announce that YAF is the new caretaker and
owner of President Ronald Reagan’s boyhood home in Dixon, Illinois. YAF looks forward to
carrying on the important work of preserving and protecting this historic property, which has
been managed and cared for by the Ronald Reagan Home Preservation Foundation since 1980.
Growing up in Dixon, Illinois—in a modest home built in 1891—was a formative experience for
Ronald Reagan. It was there, in the 1920s, that he developed the values that would guide the rest
of his life. As Reagan said of his hometown, “All of us have to have a place we go back to.
Dixon is that place for me. There was the life that has shaped my body and mind for all the years
to come.”
