Tampico, located on Route 172, was incorporated as a village on February 26, 1875, and was named to the National Register of Historic Places, Washington D.C. on June 2, 1982. Our 40th president, Ronald Wilson Reagan, was born in Tampico on February 6, 1911, in an apartment above a bakery on Main Street. The Reagans stayed in Tampico off and on for the next nine years while Jack Reagan worked as a clerk in the Pitney Store. Ronald "Dutch" and his brother Neil "Moon" attended school and enjoyed summer activities such as horseback riding and swimming in the Hennepin Canal.
