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.

I am a history teacher. I learned things about Benjamin Haarison that I never knew. It gave me a new appreciation of this American President. The tour of the home was about 1hr 15min. Many of the furnishings were original to the home.

The house takes you back in time and you learn so much about a president that never really gets talked about in school

House looks nice and the museum is Ok. I should've read up on this president before stopping. I also found out his gravesite is not located at the house. Gravesite is located in a cemetery at GPS coords: 39.818890, -86.175613

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.
