In 1969 San Clemente was brought into national prominence when then President Nixon purchased a home in the city which he would name, La Cas Pacifica. In the years to come it would become known as the Western White House. President Nixon would use the home to vacation as well as hosting many political luminaries over the years. After leaving office, the Nixons lived in the home until the late 1980s.
