In the fall of 1928 a young man from Dixon, Illinois, enrolled as a freshman at Eureka College. He became an active participant in many phases of campus life, culminating in his role as President of the student body as a senior. He was destined to become a prominent motion picture star, the Governor of California, and the 40th President of the United States of America . . . Ronald Wilson Reagan.


The Ronald Reagan Museum and Peace Garden is a museum located on Eureka College's campus in honor of our 40th President Ronald W. Reagan.


Housed in the Donald B. Cerf Center at Eureka College, the museum collection numbers over 10,000 items from President Reagan's Eureka College student days, his movie and TV career, his governorship of California and two terms as president of the United States. The Reagan Peace Garden located on the historic campus includes a bust of the 40th president and a section of the Berlin Wall.


The first items in the collection came to the College in 1975 at the request of Mr. Reagan. Additions have been made regularly since that time.
