William Howard Taft National Historic Site [OH]
The William Howard Taft National Historic Site contains the house in which Taft (1857-1930), 27th President of the United States and 10th Chief Justice, was born and raised. Taft's term (1908-1912) is remembered for trust-busting, promotion of the 16th Amendment, and global economic development efforts. The first floor of the Greek Revival structure houses period rooms, while the second floor is devoted to exhibits. Topics include both Taft himself and his family.
