Ford museum reopens to public after death

January 7, 2007


— Barb Hikade and her teenage daughter had to arrive about an hour early Saturday to be first in line when the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum reopened for the first time since the former president's death last month.

Hikade and daughter Michelle stood with about 100 people when the doors opened at 9 a.m., and then the duo made a beeline for the lobby's gift shop, where they picked out more than 40 Ford campaign buttons for themselves and as gifts to others.

The museum had been closed since Dec. 26, when Ford died at age 93 at his home in Rancho Mirage, Calif.
