Bonus Destination of the Day: National First Ladies' Library, Canton, OH

Destination 6 in the series "Hail"


The Presidents'/Prime Ministers' club is a small and nearly all male (among other things) club.  While many of the libraries and museums include exhibits about the First Lady the exhibit is often not a very complete picture of the role and the person.  This Canton, OH, museum is focused on collecting and preserving the information on all First Ladies.  The main building was the home of First Lady Ida Saxton McKinley.
