Spiegel Grove— the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Estate and Library — has been designated as an arboretum by the ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program, which means that the Grove will draw interest in the study of tree and plant life living there. An arboretum, a term bestowed upon botanical gardens made up primarily of trees, befits Spiegel Grove’s 25 acres featuring over 1,700 different trees, spanning 90 different species.
The Hayes Presidential Library reopened for visits by members on June 16, and the public on June 23. 9am-5pm, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Spiegel Grove, Fremont. 419-332-2081. rbhayes.org
