National First Ladies’ Library | First Ladies National Historic Site - Canton, Ohio
In 1994, Mary Regula led a campaign to establish a library to research and show acknowledgment of the significant role that the first ladies to U.S. presidents played. Regula recruited 13 local women activists and reached out to first lady Hillary Clinton for help. Four years later, the library opened within the Saxton McKinley house; it was the childhood home of first lady Ida McKinley, and where she and President William McKinley lived for many years.
