The Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to maintaining and preserving the Site as a museum and memorial to the only U.S. President elected from the State of Indiana. Open to the public as an educational and historical service, the Site seeks to promote patriotism and citizenship through appropriate educational activities and by artfully exhibiting the Victorian time period as Harrison and his family might have experienced it. We are proud to be designated a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior.

If you love history you will love this tour. Step back in time to the 1800's. See how people really lived back then. Home is full of antiques, many belonging to the Harrison family.

We love going to presidential libraries & homes. Because of that, we had to see this. Very nice home, mostly furnished with original furniture. Lots of artifacts & family heirlooms. The Victorian era nicely preserved. Elevator to 2nd & 3rd floors.
