Who joins in seeking all Presidential Libraries?
I'd like to start with JFK's in Boston.

Hae a nice day with GE!

Hello Rob,

you seem to be a real expert in presidential history. Do you know which president was the first one who got a museum/library?

thanks, Werner

Nope, not an expert on history, just an expert on web searches!!

Searching found that FDR had the first library.

The map is attached.

I live in College Station so I'm familiar with the Bush Library. If you look to the west of your placemark you'll see the Library/Museum complex and the Bush School. With the road overlay on you'll see Barbara Bush Drive. Notice the path it takes. The actual road is 320 meters further southwest on George Bush Drive and if you could drag that road overlay over, you'd see it matches. Your placemark is closer to the livestock arena. :)

See my corrected KMZ file.

Oops! I've only been there once, and it was a couple of years ago, so I couldn't remember what it looked like and simply based it on the address and where Google took me.

Thanks for the update!
