Garden Party

It’s easy to see why Caroline Harrison enjoyed painting blossoms of an Indiana spring.

The gorgeous landscape has been made possible by the diligence of our amazing volunteers and partners. The gardens are planned, planted, and groomed as if the Harrison family were still here caring for them. There are ten different vibrant sections in the gardens. In particular, the Historic Peony Garden, in partnership with the University of Michigan, features 26 species of heritage (1800s) peony rhizomes.

Join us on Tuesday, May 25 from 5-6:30pm and take a stroll through the beautifully maintained grounds of our 23rd President’s home. We encourage you to bring a picnic or your favorite beverage and spend some time with us at this free event.

This event is weather permitting. 

Can’t join in person, from Tuesday, May 25th- Friday, May 28th we want to celebrate the wonderful gardens around Indy!


Take a trot around your neighborhood, enjoy a peaceful moment in your backyard and if you live in the neighborhood stop by and smell the flowers at the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site. Be sure you share your moments with us using #HarrisonGardenParty.
