We have President Rutherford B. Hayes' 31-room mansion, the presidential library with his diaries and papers, a museum and the president's tomb. This is all located at Spiegel Grove, the president's 25-acre estate in Fremont Ohio. The estate includes a mile of paved walking trails.

New museum exhibit galleries were installed in 2016. We also have rotating exhibits throughout the year. These include the Hayes Train Special, our annual holiday model train exhibit.

The home was restored in 2012 to how it appeared when President Hayes, First Lady Lucy Webb Hayes and their family lived there.

Come curious and leave amazed!

Admission is charged per building, with discounts available for a Combo Ticket. Per building admission is $7.50/adult, $6.50/seniors age 60+, $3.00/children ages 6-12; free/children ages 0-5.

  • Went to the Hayes Presidential home to attend a Halloween season reading of Edgar Allen Poe's stories and poems. It was fun sitting in the Hayes parlor listening to stories of the same era. Very beautiful room and gracious hosts.
  • I was pleasantly surprised by this place. I was expecting a smaller museum since Hayes is one our country‚Äôs lesser known presidents, but they have plenty of artifacts and information here. Worth checking out if you are in the area.
