This presidential site is very enjoyable. Knowledgeable docents give you a full and relaxed tour of the home and discuss the president's life. Much of the furniture is original. Exhibits on the top floor change from time to time. It is a beautiful home and...More

Visited on Thursday at Noon. Our guide was truly knowledgable about Benjamin Harrison and his family. And his political career. The home is beautifully maintained. There are many personal posessions of Benjamin Harrison and his wife Caroline. There were also many items from his second...More
