At the July 17, 2018 City Council Meeting, the Richard Nixon Foundation was recognized as the City of Yorba Linda Business of the Quarter for the positive impact they continue to make in the community.
The mission of The Richard Nixon Foundation was first articulated by President Nixon when he stated, "I have insisted that the Nixon Library and Birthplace be not a monument to the career of one man, but a place where visitors and scholars will be able to recall the events of the time I served as President, and to measure and weigh the policies my administration pursued. I hope the Nixon Library and Birthplace will be different - a vital place of discovery and rediscovery, of investigation, of study, debate, and analysis.”
To further this mission, the Richard Nixon Foundation, in association with the National Archives and Records Administration, provides financial support to collect, preserve, and make available to the public and for scholars the documents, recordings, and other materials that illuminate the life and times and historic legacy of Richard Nixon. The Richard Nixon Foundation actively encourages and supports scholarship and sponsors programs that engage the public with the Library, promotes educational programs and exhibits, and fosters discussion and debate relating to the legacy of America's 37th President.
The Richard Nixon Foundation continues to invest in the public infrastructure of this iconic museum; in October 2016, the Foundation completed a $15 million renovation. The Nixon Library now features new technologies, interactive displays, 70 major exhibits, 11 original films, 12 custom digital interactives, an exact replica of President Nixon's Oval Office, and much more.
The Nixon Library and Museum continues to attract visitors to the City, reaffirming why Yorba Linda is one of the top destinations to live, work, and do business in Orange County. The City of Yorba Linda is proud to have organizations like the Nixon Foundation in the City. For more information, please visit the Nixon Foundation website.
