Hayes Home restoration is complete!
The Hayes Home - the centerpiece of the Hayes Presidential Center - has undergone two additions, electrification, and modernizations from air conditioning to indoor plumbing. Yet, its most incredible transformation may be its return to the 19th Century.
A little more than four years after restoration work started, seven areas of the 31-room mansion of President Rutherford B. Hayes have been restored. The home’s interior painstakingly has been converted to the way President Hayes and his wife Lucy decorated and furnished it. Funded by numerous businesses, individuals, the State of Ohio, and the federal government’s Save America’s Treasures program, this ambitious project is ready for its public unveiling!
Even if you have visited the Hayes Home before, we encourage you to make a return trip. The results of the restoration are stunning!
The Hayes Home is open for tours 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays and noon-5 p.m. Sundays. Guided tours take place every 30 minutes - beginning at 9:30 a.m. with the final tour at 4:00 p.m. Tours last 45 minutes. Admission is $7.50/adult, $6.50/senior citizens age 60+, $3.00/children 6-12; free to children age 5 and younger.
