Another really great history lesson on a "forgotten" president. The home tour was very informative and the building has been completely furnished with correct period pieces. I am glad we made the time for this tour.

We stopped in and took the guided tour of the home. Our guide was very knowledgeable and she did a wonderful job of explaining and sharing all things Harrison. She made Grouseland come to life! A wonderful experience.
