Midland: George W. Bush Childhood Home

The George H.W. Bush family spent most of their time in the area (1952–56) at the current site of the George W. Bush Childhood Home in Midland. This modest yet comfortable 1939 house reflects the lives of the Bush family (President George was roughly 5 to 9 years old at the time) through informative exhibits, photos and home furnishings. One of the highlights is George W.’s room, filled with 1950s memorabilia depicting the activities he was involved with at the time, such as Cub Scouts, Little League baseball and the Roy Rogers fan club. Other rooms replicate the domestic feel of the kitchen and den, with exhibit panels placing the family’s life and Midland history in context.
