  The graves of Herbert Hoover and his wife, Lou
by mtncorg

Standing beside Herbert Hoover’s grave – the 31st President of the United States – you can make out the low rumble of traffic on the nearby I-80, but it is easy to ignore while you contemplate on the 90-year life of this remarkable man. His birthplace, grave, other buildings that shaped his early life are all preserved here in this small Iowan town as part of the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site. The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library-Museum is also found here and covers a lifetime of public service.
