Webb Hayes was President Rutherford and First Lady Lucy Hayes’ second son and the founder of the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums. This escape room is based on his military experience.

During the escape room, you are under orders to form a search party to locate a group of U.S. soldiers imprisoned at an unknown location on the island. Sources from the 31st Infantry have confirmed that a clue trail was scattered around the site to aid in your search.

Enemy forces are stationed throughout the island, so you must move quickly to avoid detection. The success of this mission will determine the fate of your comrades. Your country is counting on you.

The Hayes Presidential Library & Museums is America’s first presidential library and the forerunner for the federal presidential library system. It is partially funded by the state of Ohio and affiliated with the Ohio History Connection. The Hayes Presidential Library & Museums is located at Spiegel Grove at the corner of Hayes and Buckland avenues.
