We had a great tour guide when we visited Benjamin Harrison's house. He talked about the family, including Benjamin being the grandson of William Henry Harrison, his marriages, his children, his accomplishments in the Civil War. The grounds are beautiful to walk around, too. The peonies were blooming and I will say they were spectacular. If you like history, this... More

The Presidential site for our nation's 23rd President, Benjamin Harrison, is a bit hidden just outside of downtown Indianapolis & can be fun trying to find a place to park especially in high traffic. However, if you can get to it, this is a very nice place to spend some time. The house contains a lot of artifacts out of... More

Well-tended home of an obscure president with mostly Harrison family possessions. Nice display upstairs. Amiable and enthusiastic staff. Accurate depiction of the latter half of the 19th century. Just off the highway and easy to access.

I found information on this home while searching for something different to do in Indianapolis other than the usual top tourist attractions. Since I love history and old homes, it seemed like a good idea to pass a little time on a rainy day, but I wasn't necessarily expecting the fabulous tour I ended up having. Our tour guide (I...

Ok so he's a middle of the road President, but he's what we got. The ice cream social event is cool. House is nice and site is well organized.

I only got to view the exterior of the house. The hours are somewhat abbreviated and so you have to go in the middle of the day (and it is a bit away from downtown). The house is beautiful, you can take your picture with the plaque. Better to get there by car.

The house is amazing! You walk into most of the rooms and almost everything you see actually belonged to Harrison and his family. There are family photos, paintings, and even a letter from Abraham Lincoln on display. The guide knew a lot about Harrison, his family, and the house. It is not accessible for disabled people since one climbs staircases... More
