Description: Reverse reads: “Hayes Home Fremont, O. Aug 10-39. Keep this for copy” The Hayes House was built in 1859 as a summer home for Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822-1893), 19th President of the United States. Built as a two story brick mansion, the Victoria home featured many bedrooms and a wrap-around porch. The Hayes House stands on 25 acres of wooded land that were part of the President's estate on Spiegel Grove.
