Tales of Travel from the President's Attic continues through Jan. 27 at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center in Fremont. President Hayes was the first U.S. president to travel to the West Coast while in office. He and his wife, Lucy Hayes, as well as their children and grandchildren, left steamer trunks, suitcases, and travel journals in the attic of what is now the Hayes Center. The exhibit shows what early and usually well-heeled travelers experienced. The Hayes visited Yosemite Valley in 1880 and their descendents traveled to Alaska decades before it became a state. There is an admission. Information: 1-800-998-7737 and rbhayes.org.
