Midway House

Midway House - OIC

Built in 1941, designed by Albert Kahn, the Officer in Charge House now serves as the Refuge Manager's house. In 1969, President Nixon hosted a secret meeting with Republic of South Vietnam President Thieu in the downstairs room. These negotiations started the process for the United States to sharply reduce U.S. troop levels in an effort to turn the war effort over to the South Vietnamese.
