Seneca Caverns (Bellevue) 15 minutes
Preserved close to its original natural state, Seneca Caverns is a unique and educational adventure which you will always remember. Seneca Caverns was discovered in June 1872 by two boys, Peter Rutan and Henry Homer of Flat Rock, Ohio, while hunting rabbits with their dog. Their dog chased a rabbit to a brush pile, where the dog and rabbit then disappeared. The boys dug around the brush pile and discovered an opening, which was actually a natural sinkhole. The boys fell through the opening, landed in the first level of the cave, where they found their dog, and crawled back up to the cave entrance. They then returned home and told everyone about their discovery. (Coupon)

Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center (Fremont) 20 minutes
United States nineteenth president. When the Civil War began, Hayes offered his services to the state of Ohio. Governor William Dennison appointed him to the rank of major in the 23rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He saw much active service, rising to the rank of major general. He was severely wounded on September 14, 1862, at the Battle of South Mountain. In 1864, while still in the army, he was elected to Congress (despite his refusal to campaign). Hayes did not take his seat until the Union had won the war. He was reelected in 1866. The following year Ohio voters elected him governor. He retired at the close of his second term in 1872, and moved to Fremont in May 1873. After winning a third term in 1875, the Republican Party chose Hayes as its presidential candidate. He won the 1876 election only after the creation of a special commission to decide disputed electoral votes. Because of the tension surrounding his election, Hayes secretly took the oath of office on Saturday, March 3, 1877, in the Red Room of the White House.
