I found information on this home while searching for something different to do in Indianapolis other than the usual top tourist attractions. Since I love history and old homes, it seemed like a good idea to pass a little time on a rainy day, but I wasn't necessarily expecting the fabulous tour I ended up having. Our tour guide (I...

Ok so he's a middle of the road President, but he's what we got. The ice cream social event is cool. House is nice and site is well organized.

I only got to view the exterior of the house. The hours are somewhat abbreviated and so you have to go in the middle of the day (and it is a bit away from downtown). The house is beautiful, you can take your picture with the plaque. Better to get there by car.

The house is amazing! You walk into most of the rooms and almost everything you see actually belonged to Harrison and his family. There are family photos, paintings, and even a letter from Abraham Lincoln on display. The guide knew a lot about Harrison, his family, and the house. It is not accessible for disabled people since one climbs staircases... More

We so enjoyed our tour of the Benjamin Harrison home. Our guide was informative and delighted us with many previously unknown stories and facts about Benjamin Harrison.

Well kept home of President Harrison which sits just off the interstate and north of downtown. The tour guide was great and very informative. Plan to spend 90 minutes with the tour and there is a nominal fee charge. Always impressed on how history is maintained in the USA. Not as glamorous like other president libraries as such

On our first visit we had a personal tour of the home of America's only president who lived in IN prior to being elected. It's been restored nicely and worth a visit.

A must do for history buffs! The house is very cool and they have done a great job preserving the house. There was a lot of facts about the family and we were hoping for more information about the actual house. The tour guide was a volunteer and he was new and was a bit green on the facts and... More
