Frank Nixon built this modest farmhouse in 1912 on his family’s nine-acre Yorba Linda citrus ranch. The family lived there until 1922, selling the home and the property and moving to nearby Whittier, California to open a grocery market.
Richard Nixon is the only native-born Californian to become President of the United States.
