Badge Interpretation Question

Question — if you look at requirements #27 and #28 of Dawn of Our Country, they ask a girl to “visit a historical site” and “tour the home of a President”, respectively. The examples given are from the early years of our country, which is in line with the subject of the badge…. but they aren’t exactly daytrips from here. Kansas City has a good collection of historical sites, and two different homes of President Harry S. Truman, but he is from a very different era than Washington, Adams, and Jefferson. Do you require a girl to select a site/home from the colonial period — meaning a roadtrip — or do you go with the strict wording of the requirements and allow local sites/homes?
