OMAHA — Renovations have been completed at the Gerald Ford birth site in Omaha.

Officials planned a rededication ceremony for Monday night.

The project included new interpretive exhibits, a renovated interpretive kiosk, accessibility improvements and renovation of the Presidential Colonnade.

The birth site and gardens are owned and maintained by the city of Omaha. This site commemorates the Omaha birthplace of Leslie King Jr., who later became Gerald R. Ford Jr., the 38th U.S. president.

The birth site originally was dedicated in 1977.
