Places Where Every U.S. President Was Born
We know there are questions around travel amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Read our note here.
In order to become a U.S. President, a person must be at least 35 years old, have lived in the country for 14 years, and be a natural-born citizen. With the latter being one of the few requirements, the birthplaces of the 44 people who have been elected over the 244-year history of the United States have become historical landmarks in their own right. (There are 45 presidents, however, since Grover Cleveland served two nonconsecutive terms; he is both POTUS number 22 and 24.)
While some are commemorated and preserved as National Park Service sites, others have more modest markers. And as the trend of log cabin-born leaders has transformed into one of hospital-born presidents (surprisingly, only five have been born in hospitals so far), birth sites are also changing with the times. As we head toward Election Day, here’s a look at all the places where U.S Presidents were born.
