The Salem native even served as an ambassador to Great Britain in 1897. L ooking for a way to beat the bored sum- mer blues and learn some new, fascinat- ing history about your own backyard? The John Hay Center, operated by the Washington County Historical Society, is rich in history waiting to be explored. It includes The Stevens Museum, John M. Hay Birthplace, Depot Railroad Museum, Pioneer Village and a Geneaological Library. The library alone is home to more than 6,000 articles, books, periodicals, magazines and pic- tures.
