On the 100th anniversary
of leaving office, President William Howard Taft paid a brief visit to his
birthplace and the site of brother's home, the Taft Museum of Art.
On Saturday, visitors were able to stand next to, put their
arms around and interact with a life size wax figure of President Taft at William Howard Taft National Historic site.
The wax figure is part of the Madame Tussauds Presidents gallery that
displays all forty-four US Presidents.
Each figure takes three to four months to complete;
artists must study hundreds of photographs and when available, video footage,
to make the figures as true to life as possible. When photographs don't exist,
artists rely on paintings and historical accounts.
Admission is free to William Howard Taft National
Historic Site and the Taft Museum of Art on Sunday April 7.
Taft will visit the Taft Museum of Art beginning at 11 am on Sunday.
