Make Plans at Ben's House for the Fourth!

Cold ice cream on a hot day is always inviting, especially when it is the Fourth of July! Enactors and live music will fill the President Benjamin Harrison Home with summertime sounds, music and memories inside and out.

Silly Safaris, Victorian puppet show, a caricaturist, a juggler, a magician and a Thomas Jefferson re-enactor all will be on hand. Croquet, and a variety of Victorian games will be available on the south lawn. Special activities will include a scavenger hunt for children, and a re-enactment of President Harrison's July 4, 1888, acceptance speech (which he gave from this Delaware Street home!) to be the nominee for President of the United States.

Hours on 4 July are 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with the last house tour beginning at 3 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults and $4 for students, with children 4 and under admitted free.
