The George W. Bush Childhood Home

1412 West Ohio Avenue
Midland, TX 79701


The Bush Childhood Home at 1412 W. Ohio Avenue is approximately 1400 square feet and largely unchanged since 1956. During Phase I of the Project, the Home's architectural details were be restored to the 1951 to late 1955 period when the Bush Family lived on Ohio Avenue. This small home is fully interpreted, leaving no space for offices, exhibits, ticketing, a classroom for school tours, a gift shop or an orientation theater. A neighboring home was purchased to serve as administrative offices, temporary education center and Gift Shop and a parking lot was leased from the nearby church.
