Beautifully maintained Italianate home in the Old Northside Historic District of Indianapolis. Many of the original furnishings are still in the home. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Harrison family and the furnishings of the home. The tour takes you on three floors including the top floor, which you seldom are allowed to see on tours. The grounds are... More

I have had the privilege of being in this great home & on the Lawn of this beautiful Landmark , in Indianapolis. I guarantee you will see somethings, in the house, that I don't think you'll see anywhere else in Indy & in a lot of other places either. Give you a hint ( it has a bully chair), if... More

I have visited many Presidential homes and this one is well maintained. I enjoyed viewing the rooms and learning that the famous front porch speech may not have occurred as recounted in history books. I was most impressed with the window treatments in the home. It made the residence very classy.

Benjamin Harrison's home in the heart of Indianapolis is well worth a visit. The home is well preserved with many personal artifacts, and the tour guide is very knowledgeable about both Harrison's life as well as the home itself. It is not expensive and easy to find. There is parking on the street as well as in a small lot... More

I love history and historic homes and absolutely loved this tour. Very detailed guide and the house is in great shape with many of the Harrison family furnishings and paintings in tact. My teenage kids were not as enthused but didn't whine too much. I would not bring younger kids.

I had a few hours to fill on my recent trip to Indy, and I am so glad I drove out to this site. I found it to be quite interesting and I have a totally new appreciation for President Harrison. I must admit I did not know much about him (or remember much from school), and this tour made... More

We had a great tour guide when we visited Benjamin Harrison's house. He talked about the family, including Benjamin being the grandson of William Henry Harrison, his marriages, his children, his accomplishments in the Civil War. The grounds are beautiful to walk around, too. The peonies were blooming and I will say they were spectacular. If you like history, this... More

The Presidential site for our nation's 23rd President, Benjamin Harrison, is a bit hidden just outside of downtown Indianapolis & can be fun trying to find a place to park especially in high traffic. However, if you can get to it, this is a very nice place to spend some time. The house contains a lot of artifacts out of... More
