“A Visit with family from Arizona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Our out of towners certainly enjoyed the history and the beauty of the Library and surroundings of this nearby historical landmark. It was a refreshing change of pace from the boating and beaches on the Lake, but it was fun to get back to the Lake after the touring of the excellent Library.

“Wonderful Collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

For any history buff, this is a wonderful research library. Lots of primary documents, old newspapers and periodicals, and ephemeral material. Mostly related to Fremont, the Hayes Family, and the Civil War and Reconstruction era.

“A thrilling day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

I went to the library on a mission to view a family heirloom that is held in the library archives. I also wanted to do some genealogical research. With the assistance of a most accommodating staff, I was successful in both endeavors. The curator Mary Lou took us to her office, quickly procured the heirloom, and let me hold it using archival gloves and be photographed. This was a great thrill. Later in the genealogical section the person in charge was most helpful. The museum on the first floor was very instructive on the life and times of President Hayes. Along with the tour of the beautiful home, it was a most rewarding day.

“Great Place for Genealogists”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

The library collection of historical books and records is a great place for genealogical research, especially for northern Ohio.
