This place is an absolute gem of a find! Such a wonderful experience and very friendly staff. Definitely do the the house tour! That was one of the most informative tours I have taken in quite awhile. Everything in the house is so very detailed and it is in pristene condition. The museum is pretty awesome too. But that house tour by Ann was just amazing! I am definitely going to be going back. I will also recommend this place to absolutely everyone heading through Fremont, OH. It is really accessible and I loved it.Thank you for making my trip so memorable! Remember!!!! TAKE THE HOUSE TOUR!!! It is literally AMAZING!!!
I really enjoy the Hayes Center, it's a beautiful historical site with many events that are all perfect for a day out with the family. The home, museum, tombs, and grounds are fantastic. It's a true treasure for the city of Fremont.
