The now several year old restoration of the Taft Museum left it a small gem as a stunning historical house and a repository of paintings, decorative arts, and furniture. There is even a cafe with delicious food, especially nice to sit outside in good weather.

Our "Over 50 Gang" toured the museum on a Tuesday morning. We had a very personable and knowledgeable guide, Jason Boyd. We learned much about Ohio's own President Taft.
