first_imgDuring Nixon’s era, the East Room was used as a reception place for his daughter Tricia Nixon Cox’s wedding. It was the site of his farewell speech, and it was where Nixon and Soviet General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev signed the SALT Treaty in 1972. Landais said this week’s visit to the Nixon museum, which was her first, was “for education.” “You learn about it in school, but when you see it physically, it means something different,” she said. Liliana Valencia, 33, of Anaheim said she took advantage of her children’s day off from school and took them to the presidential museum. “I want them to learn more about history,” Valencia said. “I came from Mexico when I was 16, and I didn’t know much about it. Hopefully they could learn more.” Valencia’s daughter, Gioana, seems to already be impressed by what she’s learned – and now seen – about the nation’s leaders. “They were brave. They have clean suits, and they have lots of important papers,” said Gioana, 7. araceli.esparza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

YORBA LINDA – While scads of people headed for malls and movies on a rainy Presidents Day holiday, thousands also flocked here to visit the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace. One such person Monday was Diana Landais, 26, from Upland. When asked why she came, she said, “Why not? It’s Presidents Day.” Landais was among thousands of Southlanders who kicked off this week’s holiday with a visit to the Nixon museum, where a slew of events honoring the nation’s 37th president awaited them. Since opening in 1990, officials have waived the museum’s admission fee – up to $10 – several times a year, including Presidents Day, said museum spokeswoman Sandy Quinn. The idea is to provide visitors with a free experience that takes them into the presidential world, into the home in which late President Nixon was born and to the site where he and his late wife, Pat, are buried. “This is one place people can come and get a taste of the presidency. You come here and it makes the textbooks come to life,” Quinn said. While Monday’s event focused on Nixon, it also commemorated all things presidential, as visitors were greeted by George Washington and Abraham Lincoln impersonators in the museum’s lobby. Museumgoers posed with the VH-3A “Sea King” helicopter, which was used to transport several U.S. presidents, including Nixon, and other diplomats throughout the country between 1961 and 1976. Visitors also walked through a replica of the White House’s East Room, where hundreds of social events and other gatherings were hosted by former presidents. last_img read more
