This small building buzzed with activity during the 1880 presidential campaign. Garfield changed this library into the headquarters for his political supporters and a meeting room for the press who covered the election campaign that summer and fall.

With telegraph wire strung to it, the "Campaign Office" also served as Garfield's communication center. Here, on November 2, 1880, James A. Garfield received the telegraph message that he had been chosen President in one of the closest races in United States history.
