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.

This is an amazing place. We learned so much about our 23rd president that we weren't taught in school. Lot's of historic items in this house.

Grand home built in 1875. A nice tribute to an overlooked president. Well worth the stop. Free parking in the rear and along the street.

No one else was there the day we arrived, so we had a private tour! Docent very knowledgeable. Top floor was closed for exhibit rotation- that was disappointing that we could not even peek in to see the room. Lots of original items.
