Piece of Grover Cleveland's Wedding Cake

Birthplace of the 22nd and 24th president. Cleveland married Frances Folsom while president and the couple's daughter, Ruth, became so famous that the Baby Ruth candy bar was named after her. The birthplace is reputed to have a piece of his wedding cake on display. The house was once the pastor's house for the nearby Presbyterian Church. Cleveland had the good sense to move to Buffalo at the age of three.

The center of Caldwell has appeared in several films as the prototypical suburban setting, most notably in "North," where the gorgeous neon sign for Schantz's hardware is clearly visible.
