I had time to visit the Richard Nixon Library & Museum in Yorba Linda. Worth a few hours of your time IMO if in the area.
Francis Nixon built this house from a mail order building kit in 1912. Richard was born in his mothers bed in 1913 and he and his brothers lived in the upstairs bedroom from 1913-1922.
Small storage area off the kitchen. The tub was used for giving the kids a bath. Water was heated by a wood burning stove and poured into this tub. Most houses did not have indoor plumbing in 1912.
