19th U.S. President, Rutherford B. Hayes. His Life, Home, Library and Gravesite in Fremont, Ohio

On this week’s episode, we’re in Fremont, Ohio exploring the home, library, and gravesite of the 19th U.S. President, Rutherford B. Hayes. Hayes was a lawyer and a Civil War hero. He was elected to his one term as president not by the popular vote but by a special committed established by Congress.

He later retired to Spiegel Grove, a beautiful estate in Fremont, Ohio. After his passing, the Hayes Commemorative Library and Museum opened becoming the very first presidential library in the U.S. Then in 1928, Congress authorized the donation of original iron gates at the entrance to the White House grounds on West Executive Avenue to the state of Ohio where they were placed at the several gateways at Hayes’ home.

And today, we’re taking you here to explore this wonderful site, take in a bit of history, as well as pay our respects to the President and First lady. So, please come along with us – on this episode of History and Relics!
