William Henry Harrison died of pneumonia thirty-one days into his term, thereby serving the shortest tenure in United States presidential history. Because he was the first president to die in office, his death sparked a constitutional crisis and questions and debates about the U.S. Presidential...More

My daughter and I stopped at this monument earlier this year. It had been vastly improved since last I had been here. The tours are at special times (not always available), so we do plan to call to find out when we can visit again...More

When in town, I always stop by the “tomb”. I was unable to get to it as they are replacing the old stone steps out front. It was a disappointment, but glad to see some renovations in the works, it’s a beautiful old place. I...More

I was hesitant to visit this site, knowing the history of this man and what he did to the Native Americans, butchering young and old, stealing their land without remorse. My wife and I decided to check it out, and trying to be fair, it...More

This is the tomb of William Henry Harrison. The tomb looks impressive, especially with eagle statues in front of it. There are also some information boards that talk about his life, as well as that of his family members. Probably 15-30 minutes is fine to...More

We traveled a while on the Ohio River Scenic Byway from Indiana to get here, and it’s NOT scenic in this area; too industrial and developed. There’s a very limited view of the river from Harrison’s obelisk on the hillside. There’s limited parking and the...More

A very good overview of President Harrison's life is available near the actual tomb/monument. It puts into perspective his times and his impressive resume. Just across the street is a old cemetery where some of his relatives were buried. All worth a visit. Nearby is...More

A hidden surprise along the Ohio River. William Henry Harrison and his grandson Benjamin Harrison were 9th and 23rd presidents of the US. The contributions of their family are long forgotten. A visit to this beautiful monument and the adjoining Congress Green Cemetery reminds you...More

This is a wonderful memorial with a very large monument built in 1922, whereas the tomb itself has been there since 1841. There is a short path from the parking lot to the tomb, so not much of a walk. This is near the Ohio...More
