It's official, the George W Bush library is coming to the campus of SMU, Southern Methodist University, in Dallas, TX. There has been much heated debate about this library and what it would stand for. The campus was split on wanting it and not wanting it.
This will be the 13th Presidential Library across the country. Construction is to start in 2009 and they expect it to take five years to complete. That sounds like quite a project!
SMU is also where the First Lady, Laura Bush, graduated from. Dallas is also going to be where the Bush family makes their home after his term is up. There have been rumors on what part of Dallas he'll live in. He used to live in a very modest home in Prestonwood. I'm sure he'll be moving his price range up a few hundred thousand dollars from that home.
