Birthplace

 

Birthplace: 40 North Main Street, Niles, OH (National McKinley Birthplace Memorial)

Visited: 5/13/10

Log Excerpt: "Continued up to Niles, and here we found the much more impressive William McKinley National Memorial, across the street from his birthplace (which now has a replica house, which we missed, that replaced a bank that replaced the original home). The memorial has a large, partially-covered outdoor area with a big statue, with the WM Library and Museum flanking it. "
