Midland-Plans to restore the childhood home of President George W. Bush are now taking shape. A group of realtors is raising money to renovate the Midland home at 1412 W. Ohio St., where George W. Bush and his family lived for several years in the 1950’s.
‘Midland can be proud of what the Board of Realtors is doing.” – Jenna Welch, Laura Bush’s mother
The prospects of the George W. Bush Childhood Home becoming a national Midland monument that would be restore precisely to its 1950s Bush years is making progress under sponsorship of the Permian Basin Board of Realtors. The concept has gained its non-profit corporation status through the Texas Secretary of State and is awaiting its tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service, said Bill Scott, a Midland Realtor who is president of the George W. Bush Childhood Home, Inc.
The George W. Bush 1950s boyhood Homeplace in Midland is destined to enter the public domain, to be restored, and deemed the “presidential home” of two future United States presidents – George H.W. Bush and his son.
Earlier Monday, an Arizona couple visiting friends in Odessa drove to Midland to view the former Bush houses. The couple, Roger and Thelma Thomson, noted they had viewed the Bush Ohio Avenue house on television.
