Dixon, IL 61021
Dixon was an interesting stop on my road trip recently. The current Dixon Post Office is named in honor of President Ronald Reagan. They seem to be pretty proud of this as you walk in the front entrance in large letters are the words “President Ronald W. Reagan Post Office”.
After spending some time waiting for the perfect picture of the building I headed inside. Someone or somebody spent a great deal of time working on the various informational banners hanging inside the lobby. It was nice to see this and makes for an interesting discovery. Since my initial visit to Dixon I have also visited the Tampico Illinois Post Office which I also learned was Ronald Reagan’s birthplace. See how it all fits together? I’ll be highlighting the Tampico Illinois Post Office soon.
I only spent a brief time online looking for more information about when or how it was named, but only found a few clips in regards to the building itself. I did find the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation website to be quite interesting. I’m guessing there is more information out there and I’d love to research this further when I have time. Does anyone have suggestions on were to start to find more information about who did the banners? Researched the material etc?
Thanks for reading
