Hayes Train Special

Everyone is a kid again as they watch eight different model trains travel an expansive three-tier model train layout. All of the trains are styles that relate to the life of 19th U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes and his family.

Visitors can act as engineers lifting gates, flashing lights, sounding the whistle, and more, via a series of interactive buttons. A miniature Victorian village provides a picturesque setting through which the trains travel.

This model train exhibit is made possible by co-sponsors the Gordon W. Knight Family and Croghan Colonial Bank.
