Event List
 

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. Additional funding provided by Memorial Hospital.

Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM   
Event Title: Tales of Travel from the President's Attic
Event Description: 19th President Rutherford B. Hayes enjoyed traveling. He was the first U.S. president to travel to the West Coast while in office. His children and grandchildren caught the travel-bug as well, as evidenced by their numerous steamer trunks and travel journals. This new Center-created exhibit takes a look at travel when it was a luxury few people could afford and the risks were very real. Visitors can see what early tourists (like Rutherford and Lucy Hayes) saw when they visited Yosemite Valley in the late 1800s, what a 19th-Century hunting party encountered on the Great Plains, or what travelers experienced in the barely-explored lands of Alaska three decades before it became a state. A focal point of the exhibit is dozens of travel trunks left in the attic of President Hayes’ home by the Hayes family. The exhibit showcases travel photos, clothing, souvenirs, and journals dating from the late 19th to mid-20th centuries. A video component plays 20th Century home movies of the Hayes family’s travels to France and Scotland. Sponsored by Croghan Colonial Bank.

Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM   
Event Title: Sleigh Rides through Spiegel Grove
Event Description: Re-create a scene straight from a Currier & Ives print as the Hayes Presidential Center hosts sleigh rides through the estate of 19th U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes. Young and old alike will delight in these nostalgic horse-drawn tours through Hayes' 25-acre estate. Afterward, warm up with a visit to the elegant 31-room Hayes Home or the 2-story Hayes Museum. Rides are provided by South Creek Clydesdales. Cost is $3 per rider.
