Dixon, Illinois — The brass historical marker sign at Reagan Memorial Park describing “Reagan Way.” It reads:


Hennepin Avenue was often walked by a young Ronald Reagan from home to downtown and back. The street has four landmark institutions that played a vital role in the development of his character. They include the boyhood home, the grade school (now Northwest Territory Historic Center), Dixon Public Library and the First Christian Church. This street has been designated as Reagan Way and a historical landmark by the Dixon Historical Preservation Commission.
