Here is a little trivia question to get us started. Which state has been home to the most presidents?
The answer is? Ohio––sort of!
Technically--Ohio and Virginia are tied for that honor as William Henry Harrison is on the list of presidents for Ohio and Virginia. President Harrison was born and studied in Virginia, but spent much of his life in Ohio and became a senator for the Buckeye state.
For a little history and fun a visit to the McKinley Monument and the William McKinley Presidential Library and Museum will appease all ages. It is located at 800 McKinley Monument Drive NW, Canton, Ohio.
The monument has become a well known landmark for the city of Canton and yes, for you sports fans, it is just a stones throw from the National Football Hall of Fame. 
The dome of the memorial is very visible from I-77. Many come to run up and down the 108 steps of the memorial. The inside of the dome is 50 feet in diameter and 77 feet high. At the top of the dome is a red, white and blue skylight with 45 stars included in the design, which represent the states of the union at the time of McKinley's death.  The president, his wife and their two daughters lay at rest in the dome.
The memorial, library and museum make for an interesting day for the entire family. The museum has hands-on activities at Discover World. It highlights the past, present and future from dinosaurs to space stations. Participate in a simulated fossil dig and see and learn about the mastodon skeleton, which was found in the area during the excavation process for an apartment building.
The Indian nation called Nobles Pond in Jackson township home about 11,000 years ago? See a replica of a Paleo hut from the area.
There are fish, turtles and the explanation of just how ecosystems work.
Capture you shadow at Space Station Earth where hands-on is allowed. Plenty of science activities for all ages.
Enjoy seeing the stars before your eyes at the Hoover-Price Planetarium. With more than 60 projectors visitors experience everything from meteor showers to snow, moon to  a panorama of Canton.
