Rutherford B. Hayes Birthplace

President Rutherford B. Hayes was born in Delaware, Ohio, on October 4, 1822. The house he was born in remained standing until 1926, when it was knocked down and replaced by a gas station. There is still a gas station on the site, one owned by the British, interestingly enough. When the house was torn down, a plaque was put up, but it doesn’t really give one a strong sense of history. Here’s what the house looked like.
