Season 1, Episode 19: Rutherford Hayes and Delaware (OH)

Rutherfraud? What isn’t a fraud is the birthplace improvements done to Rutherford Birchard Hayes’ birth commemoration in Delaware, Ohio.

The only birth site that is now a gas station, today there is a bit more celebration of Hayes’ life and contributions in this lovely town!
