Library
“Richard Nixon's family was a well-established Quaker family in Whittier. The Nixon Library and Museum tells the story of Nixon's childhood, young adulthood, entrance into politics, political career and downfall very well. It is a must-see for history buffs. After visiting the Museum, visit the places in Whittier where Nixon went to high school, college, church and where he worked. ”
