This replica is an actual size of the Ronald Reagan?s Oval Office during his administration and decorated to his American Western taste.

The desk was made from the timbers of the H.M.S. Resolute, an abandoned British ship discovered by an American vessel and returned to the Queen of England as a token of friendship and goodwill, it was commissioned by Queen Victoria and presented to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880. Called the Resolute Desk, it has been used by every president since Hayes, exception for Presidents Johnson, Nixon and Ford. If you have noticed that the wooden base had to be added by 2? because President Reagan wash 6?2? so this would keep the desk drawers from hitting his knees.

Address: 40 Presidential Drive Simi Valley, California 9306
