I spent a morning in Fremont, Ohio, last week and visited the Birchard Public Library, founded in 1873 by Sardis Birchard and his nephew, US President, Rutherford B. Hayes (map).
It’s a wonderful historic building that’s been tastefully expanded and upgraded for new technology.
I also had breakfast at the AM Korner café (map), which you won’t find reviewed on Yelp. I’m pretty sure I was the only dweeb using a mobile phone in this café nestled into a diagonal corner along Fremont’s State Street. Everyone else was enjoying company and some down-home food.
It’s an old-school diner serving basic diner food, breakfast available all day, cheese omelettes made with American cheese and huge, tasty sausage patties. They also have perch and walleye sandwiches.
I loved how the windows were lined with antiques. See more pics here.
If you head over to Fremont for a beyond the shores adventure, check out the Rutherford B. Hayes Museum and grounds.
