The Bush Library
The Presidential Library of the 41st President of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush is located on the campus of Texas A&M University and immediately adjacent to the George Bush School of Political Science and Economics. It is a part of the Presidential Museum and houses the documents of President Bush’s life, political career, Presidency and post Presidential period. It contains 44 million pages and documents that are administered by the National Archives and Records Administration.
The 90 acre complex is a park like setting with a pond where President Bush liked to fish and a horse shoe pit where he played horse shoes with the last Premier of the Soviet Union and President of Russia Michail Gorbachev. The beautiful setting is highlighted with a statue of horses jumping the crumbling Berlin Wall to freedom to recognize the pivotal role President Bush played in the fall of the wall, German Reunification and the end of the Cold War.
Both President Bush, his wife Barbara and daughter Robin are buried on the grounds of the Library.
