Lucy Wedding Banquet Tradition Continues…on Valentine’s Day

February 14 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Join us for an evening dinner at the Lucy Hayes Heritage Center to commemorate the December 30th, 1852 marriage of Lucy Ware Webb and Rutherford Birchard Hayes.

For this year, the annual tradition of the Hayes’ Wedding Banquet at the Lucy House will be on the lovers’ holiday – Valentine’s Day – Friday, February 14th, 2020.

“Elegant Eats” will cater the event, with a menu to be released soon (as well as our newsletter) – but including Italian stuffed chicken breasts. We will begin to gather for conversation and appetizers at 4, with dinner served at 5. It should be light enough outside to comfortably head home after 6 pm.

Reserve your seat at $25 a person, with limited seating. Please mail checks made out to “Friends of Lucy Hayes Heritage Center” to P.O. Box 1790, Chillicothe OH 45601.
