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).
This is the marker near the front door of the home.
This chandelier is in what was the McKinleys’ sitting room.
This is William McKinley’s office and desk.
This is a smaller desk/table in William McKinley’s office.
This is the McKinley china, made by Haviland China Co. in Limoges, France.
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.
