GroveFest celebrates nature, Spiegel Grove and President Rutherford and First Lady Lucy Hayes’ love of the outdoors. The couple raised cows and chickens and planted trees on their beloved estate. Lucy Hayes’ favorite pastime was fishing, and she loved nature so much that her official White House china had images of the flora and fauna of the United States, from deer and raccoons to fish and lobsters.
