It is always great to learn about those who are fading from memory. He is extraordinary for having served as President and Chief Justice. An hour and a half will cover the home, the video, and the displays. The staff was very helpful.

This is a must when in Cincinnati. You will get some interesting information about the President who served one term and why Teddy Roosevelt ruin his chance for a second term. He was the only President to serve in 2 branches of government.
