WEST BRANCH, IOWA— Historic buildings at Herbert Hoover National Historic Site are closed as a precaution against flooding. Due to high rainfall, Hoover Creek, the small creek that runs through the historic site, is in flood stage. Because additional rainfall is expected, the historic buildings will remain closed as a safety precaution. The Visitor Center will remain open for business 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Visitor Center parking lot is closed due to flooding; park at the Village Green parking lot across the street. Visitors are encouraged to stay away from the creek banks.

Herbert Hoover National Historic Site and the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum are in West Branch, Iowa at exit 254 off I-80. Both are open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time. For more information go online at www.nps.gov/heho or call (319) 643-2541.
