LIVE! Election Day

This event puts you at the front door of history! This free family friendly event is the perfect way to teach your family more about civics and the political process in the United States.

Get a glimpse of the Harrison family as they eagerly await results from the 1888 presidential election and learn if they’ll be the newest occupants of the white house. Is General Harrison ready to become President? What does his wife, Caroline, think of the over 80 speeches he gave to more than 80,000 people from their front porch during the campaign?

First floor tours will be available on a first come first served basis between 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM. No reservations are required.

Learn more about the 1888 election.

“I have traversed this broad land of ours, and out of all this journeying, out of all this mingling with our people, I have come to be a prouder and, I hope, a better American.” Benjamin Harrison
