Tiffin University students enrolled in Ohio History visited the Hayes Presidential Library and Museums located in Fremont, Ohio.
Not only did the students visit the recently restored home of the nineteenth president of the United States, they were given a behind the scenes tour of the library and museum's archives. Students were able to view many items in the collection, including many historic images and documents pertaining to Rutherford B. Hayes, that are not often viewed by the public. The class was also introduced to resources available to them at the library and were given a lecture further introducing them to the political career of Hayes.
For many students, this was the first time that they visited the Hayes Presidential Library and Museums, said Professor Andrew Van Camp. Thanks to the generosity of the School of Arts and Sciences, students were able to experience this excellent historical and cultural resource, he said. The class would also like to thank the staff at the museum, especially Dustin McLochlin, Nan Card, Becky Hill, and the Hayes Home guides, for organizing such an exceptional and engaging experience.
