Hayes Presidential offers free admission on Presidents Day

Press Staff Writer

        Celebrate Presidents’ Day by touring the museum and home of 19th U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes and taking a sleigh ride through the president’s estate on Monday, Feb. 15.
        HPLM is offering free admission to the museum and Hayes Home on Presidents Day. Museum tours will be available during morning (8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) or afternoon (1 p.m.-5 p.m.) time slots. Attendance will be capped in order to maintain proper physical distancing, therefore reservations are required.
        Visitors can take a self-guided tour of the museum at any point during the time slot they choose. To reserve one of the museum time slots, visit rbhayes.org/events/2021/02/15/events/presidents-day-celebration/.
        Visitors can also reserve a Hayes Home tour on a first-come, first-served basis when they arrive that day. Tour sizes remain reduced for safety reasons. No advance reservations are being taken for home tours.
        In addition, there will be kids’ activities and an artifact display in the museum auditorium.
        The research library will be closed for the holiday.
        Sleigh rides
        From noon to 5 p.m., South Creek Clydesdales will offer horse-drawn sleigh rides through Spiegel Grove. Up to four people in one household group can fit in the sleigh, and rides are limited to one household group at a time. The cost is $5.50 per person ages for ages 3 and older and free for kids 2 and younger. Rides last about 10 minutes. Riders must wear a face covering unless they have accepted exemption to the state of Ohio’s mask mandate.
        Rides will take place whether or not there is snow. In the event of negative wind chills or thunderstorms, rides could be canceled. Updates will be posted at rbhayes.org. If the rides are canceled due to weather, refunds will be given. Otherwise, there are no refunds.
        Tickets also will be sold at the front desk the day of the event, pending availability. To purchase tickets online, visit www.rbhayes.org/events/2021/02/15/events/presidents-day-celebration/.
