The Birthplace of Herbert Hoover, West Branch, Iowa - Grant Wood

Counted Cross Stitch Pattern

A view of the cottage where Herbert Hoover was born (the leftmost of the three white adjoining buildings in the center of the painting -- the two-story house and covered walkway were added by a later owner, and are no longer there). When Hoover became president, it became a popular tourist attraction, and a tour guide stands on the lawn and gestures toward the cottage. Orphaned at 9, Hoover called this place "physical proof of the unbounded opportunity of American life." The hamlet of West Branch is shown from the top of a steep hill on a clear early autumn day. (American Regionalism, 1931)
