From the plaque:

"I was born in a house my father built." President Richard Nixon (1913-1994)

In 1912 Frank and Hannah Nixon built this modest farmhouse on their small citrus ranch. Here Richard Nixon was born, January 9, 1913, and spent his first nine years. He served his country as Congressman, U.S. Senator, Vice President, and 37th President of the United States (1969-1974). He was the first native-born Californian to hold the presidency. President Nixon achieved significant advances in international diplomacy by ending U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, opening lines of communication with China and the Soviet Union, and initiating the Middle East peach process.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace. Dedicated January 9, 1995.
