President Benjamin Harrison home — a very worthwhile visit.
Oct 2021 • Solo
The site was a wonderful history of the President and his family. Our tout guide, Mike, was exceptional. He told stories and gave background on everything in and about the house. He welcomed and answered questions with facts and enthusiasm. This was a great visit. Highly recommended.

Informative and fun tour. Mike has a good style of presentation in bringing this overlooked President to life. Home is handicapped accessible (ramps and small elevator) and is filled with mostly actual items owned and used by Harrison (only a few substitutions). A great use of 90 minutes or so. Parking lot in the back or street parking available.

Martha West us through Harrison’s beautiful home it’s 16 rooms and 16 fireplaces. She shares a lot of trivia at the house, family I am presidency. We spent an hour here and she answered all of our questions. Fabulous home has more original artifacts than any other presidential residence. Now it’s obvious why AAA calls this gem

Best Historic Home EVER
Aug 2021 • Family
We visited today and it far exceeded our expectations. Knowledgeable docent and pristine home - we were able to go in almost every room. Better than any historic home in Charleston. Highly recommend.

Wonderful tour
Aug 2021 • Couples
Even though we were 45 minutes "late" due to not taking a time change in to account, we were given a grand tour which we enjoy immensely. Our guide, Daniel, was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic on all matters concerning President Benjamin Harrison. Do not pass this gem up if history is your thing or you are just looking for something off the beaten path.
