National First Ladies Historic Site

On Friday October 23, 2015 our curator visited the National First Ladies Historic Site in Canton. This is the house that was owned by Ida McKinley’s father. It is the place where William McKinley lived the longest (eleven years).

Just as we have tools used in building the McKinley Birthplace Memorial on exhibit, the National First Ladies Historic Site has tools used in building the McKinley tomb on exhibit.
