Event List

Time: 9:00 AM - 9:15 PM   
Event Title: GroveFest
Event Description: The park-like grounds of Spiegel Grove have been a gathering spot since the time 19th President Rutherford Hayes took up permanent residence at his wooded country estate. From annual reunions of Civil War veterans to Victorian lawn parties, the Grove exuded a spirit of welcome. GroveFest continues that tradition. The multi-faceted event takes place throughout Spiegel Grove. Families, singles, couples, and senior citizens can mingle and enjoy a free 'Music at the Grove' concert, 'Collectible Cars at the Grove' car show, and 'Croquet at the Grove' croquet tournament featuring croquet clubs from throughout the area. The allure of an evening gala is in store for those who choose to express support for the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center by purchasing a ticket to the 'Bid at the Grove' fundraising auction. Major sponsorship for "GroveFest" is provided by KeyBank-Walter E. Terhune Memorial Fund and The Fremont Company.

Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM   
Event Title: The Wildlife Art of Bob Hines
Event Description: Ohio native Robert Hines (1912-1994) holds the distinction of being the only National Wildlife Artist for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Hines developed his love of nature growing up along the verdant banks of the Sandusky River in Fremont, Ohio. Despite almost no formal art training, Hines’ innate talent led him to become an internationally-recognized wildlife artist and a pioneer of the conservation movement. His work illustrated a weekly newspaper feature, and numerous wildlife guides and books – including those by author Rachel Carson and Robert McClung (of Grizzly Adams fame). This exhibit in celebration of the 100th year of Hines’ birth, includes a broad array of his original artwork from private & public collections. It is made possible through funding from The Fremont Co., Diversified Insurance Service, and Ohio Department of Natural Resources-Division of Wildlife.

Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM   
Event Title: The Gilded Age of Haviland China
Event Description: In the early 19th century, Americans looked to Europe when purchasing china. When importer David Haviland no longer could satisfy his customers' tastes for embellished fine china, good-old American ingenuity came into play. Haviland built his own factory in Limoges, France, to turn out the finest china in the world with artistic flourishes to satisfy his U.S. customers. Numerous examples of some of the earliest pieces of Haviland China (1850-1890) are on display in this unique exhibit sponsored by the Randolph J. & Estelle M. Dorn Foundation.

Time: 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM   
Event Title: Vintage Base Ball
Event Description: The Spiegel Grove Squires defend their 2011 championship win at the second annual Sauder Village Cup vintage base ball tournament. The Squires are sponsored by the Randolph J. & Estelle M. Dorn Foundation.
