Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM   
Event Title: Hayes Train Special
Event Description: Everyone is a kid again as they watch eight different model trains travel a 12x24-foot, three-tier model train layout. All of the trains are styles that relate to the life of 19th U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes and his family. Visitors act as engineers lifting gates, flashing lights, sounding the whistle, and more, via a series of interactive buttons. A miniature Victorian village provides a picturesque setting through which the trains travel.

Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM   
Event Title: Privy to History: Civil War Prison Life Unearthed
Event Description: Northwest Ohio is home to the only Union Army Civil War prison specifically designed to house captured Confederate officers. Johnson's Island Civil War Prison continues to reveal tantalizing details about the war and the men who fought and died. This exhibit focuses on additional information learned through archaeological evidence discovered since the 1965 publication of 'Rebels on Lake Erie' - the seminal history of the prison written by Charles E. Frohman. Numerous artifacts recovered from the site in recent years are on display. This exhibit is funded by the Sidney Frohman Foundation & Friends and Descendants of Johnsonís Island Civil War Prison.
