LIVE! President Harrison’s Birthday

Join us in celebrating Benjamin Harrison’s 186th Birthday with free first floor tours and complimentary birthday treats!

Fantastic reenactors portray President Harrison and his family for an authentic experience in the home of our Hoosier President.

Take a tour of this beautiful 10,000 sq.ft. Italianate Victorian family home of President Benjamin Harrison – our country’s 23rd US President (1889-1893) and Indiana’s only President. Built in 1875, the home is beautifully furnished with many of Harrison’s paintings, furniture, and other artifacts including political memorabilia.

 

Looking for more fun?

Join us on Saturday, August 17th 2019 for the annual wreath laying ceremony at Harrison’s memorial in Crown Hill cemetery.  Our partners at Crown Hill have put together a lively and information program that will begin at 10:30am with music by the Crossroads of America Boy Scout Band.

Click here for more information about the wreath laying ceremony.

After the ceremony, head down to the Indiana War Memorial to witness the dedication of the original battle flag of Harrison’s Indiana 70th Regiment volunteers. Rally Round the Flag will begin with a light lunch at noon, the dedication at 1:00pm and free tours of the museum.
