Synopsis: Homes and Libraries of the Presidents identifies, describes, and provides sources of additional information to almost one hundred homes, libraries, and museums that commemorate one or more of the presidents of the United States. Each president's life and home is put into personal and historical context. The book has three sections and contains 121 b&w figures and 37 color plates.

Section one provides an overview of the historical significance of presidential homes and museums, discusses restoration and preservation efforts, and traces the federal governments' role, through the National Park Service and the National Archives, in administering and maintaining these sites.

Section two-the most extensive part of the book-presents short anecdotal biographies of each President, followed by a description of the relevant home, museum or library sites. Basic location and access information is also provided for each site.

Section three identifies sources of additional information related to the theme of the book, as well as a list of presidential birthplaces, burial sites, and other attractions associated with the presidents.

From the Inside Flap: Since William Clotworthy's Homes and Libraries of the Presidents first appeared in 1995, it has been the standard of guides to presidential homes, museums, and libraries. Not only does this book identify, describe, and provide access information to nearly one hundred publicly accessible sites that commemorate and interpret the presidents of the United States, but it also provides detailed maps to assist visitors in actually finding sites that they might wish to visit and short lists of books and articles that help readers expand upon the information presented in the site descriptions. Homes and Libraries of the Presidents is also the most frequently revised of the available presidential guidebooks; the current edition, in fact, contains information that was less than one week old when the book went to press and includes reference to events that are scheduled to take place months after the book appears on the market. As noted in previous editions, there is no way for the average citizen to get closer to the intimate environments, material possessions, or creations of American presidents than to visit their homes or the museums and libraries that house and interpret their lives and legacies. Homes and Libraries of the Presidents will continue to lead the many curious and inquisitive travelers to those places that open windows onto the personal lives of some of America's most important public figures, their families, and their times.
