This house at Spiegel Grove was home for a hundred years to five generations of the Hayes family. Built by his uncle in the 1860’s, Rutherford B. Hayes and his wife Lucy enlarged it considerably in the years following his presidency. Visiting his home and adjacent museum gave us a feel for the man, his background, his family, and his times. It makes it so much easier to remember where he comes in the succession of presidents and his importance in American history!

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
