Herbert Hoover was born in a small, two-room cottage in 1874. Today, that cottage —called the Birthplace Cottage— along with other historic buildings associated with his early childhood in West Branch, form the centerpiece of the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site.
Herbert Hoover exemplified the ideal of individualism and the self-made man. His expertise as a mining engineer made him a millionaire by age 40. Having been raised in the Quaker traditions of humanity and generosity, Hoover then embarked on a course of public service for the rest of his life.
This pin is a part of our America’s National Parks Collector’s Series and commemorates this National Historical Site.
