Head to West Branch for Hoover’s Hometown Days

Join thousands of visitors to the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site in nearby West Branch Friday–Saturday, Aug. 5–6, for Hoover’s Hometown Days, a celebration of the birthday of the 31st U.S. president—the only U.S. president from Iowa.

The schedule of events includes games and music on Friday night and a Hooverball tournament (a combination of elements from tennis, volleyball, and medicine ball), live music by eastern Iowa musicians, children’s activities, and a fireworks display on Saturday.

The national historic site, where Hoover was born and buried, is about 10 miles east of Iowa City on Interstate 80.
