George W. Bush Childhood Home Could Be Designated a National Landmark
Midland could have it's first National Landmark if all goes as planned.
According to NewsWest 9, the home is scheduled to be surveyed for a second and final time by the National Parks System after a bill passed through the House of Representatives on Tuesday (February 26, 2019).
Congressman Mike Conaway was the one who introduced the bill because the house is the former home of two U.S. Presidents, two governors, and a first lady.
“The history gives us a chance to set it into perspective, and this structure, and his time in Midland was really important to everything he did as an adult and I think it’s important to try and tell that legacy and help people understand it,” said Conaway.
The bill is scheduled to be signed by President Trump in the next 10 days or so and once he does that, the second survey from the National Parks System can begin.
