The folks enjoyed the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library. Mama said she learned a lot. Did you know that he didn't collect any pay while he was in office? Instead of having a regular inauguration party, the party raised money for charities. He and his wife actually donated over $450,000 to charities while he was in office. Pretty amazing. He was always giving back to people. Unfortunately, the stock market crashed just months into his term and people blamed him and called him a bad President.

He and his wife, Lou, are buried up the hill from the library.
His childhood house is located near the library.

The folks left the Hoover area and drove to the Amana Colonies. I will tell you about that tomorrow.
