Fake Berlin Wall - Dixon

Ronald Reagan, who was raised in Dixon, was a key player in the demise of the Berlin Wall. Two years before its fall, he demanded Gorbachev, then-general secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, to “tear down this wall.”

The same year the Berlin wall fell, Nick Tanev a Bulgarian immigrant donated the sculpture – “Wings of Peace and Freedom” – to the city.

“Nick was a big fan of Reagan so he picked Dixon because it was Ronald Reagan’s boyhood home.
