William Howard Taft National Historic Site of Ohio honors former President and Chief Justice William Taft. The historic site echoes Taft's legacy.
From the time of his birth in 1857 until he embarked on a political career that would win him the two highest offices in the nation, William Howard Taft lived here, surrounded by family and what his mother called, "inspiration to everything that was good." The house that Taft was born in has been restored to its original appearance.
