Our Mission

The mission of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site is to increase public understanding of, appreciation for, and participation in the American system of self-government through life stories, arts and culture of an American President.

Our vision is the renewal and reinvigoration of the mutual covenant between those who govern and those who are governed, which is at the heart of the American experiment in self-government.

The Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site is a not for profit, tax-exempt organization, whose purpose is to maintain and preserve the Harrison home, collections and grounds as a museum and memorial to the only President of the United States 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.

“An American citizen could not be a good citizen who did not have a hope in his heart.” ~ Benjamin Harrison
