2014 Christmas Dinners at Spiegel Grove

The President invites you to dinner at his home!

Experience an evening during the Victorian Age as you help support the nation's first presidential center - the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center. This elegant evening features a six-course Victorian feast served in the 31-room mansion of our 19th President. Guests have the added treat of seeing the home's interior restored to its 19th Century gradeur - the result of an almost five-year historically-accurate restoration!

Your journey into the Victorian Era begins when you step out of your automobile. A footman stands ready to assist you into a horse-drawn carriage that transports you to the carriage entrance of the Hayes Home, where soldiers of the Union Army stand at attention to escort you into the house.

Inside, costumed wait staff see to every need as period entertainment echoes through the elegant presidential home. The menu for the evening's repast is taken straight from State Dinners hosted by President and Mrs. Hayes during their 1877-1881 residence in the White House.

Seating is limited to 24 guests per night. Reservations and advance payment is required.
