Before serving as 19th President of the United States, Rutherford B. Hayes served as a soldier during the Civil War, and was governor of Ohio, his home state. Learn about this fascinating man at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center, which houses Hayes’s library, a museum and the president’s tomb.

The 25-acre complex was once home to Hayes, and the 25-acre estate in Fremont, Ohio includes one mile of paved walking trails. In 2012, the estate was restored to its original appearance, to reflect life when President Hayes and First Lady Lucy Webb Hayes resided there.

The museum features rotating exhibits throughout the year, including the Hayes Train Special, the annual holiday model train exhibit.
