Celebrate Presidents' Day at a President's House

The President Benjamin Harrison Home, 1230 North Delaware Street, Indianapolis, celebrates Presidents’ Day with the opening of a special exhibit, "live" re-enactment tours and the flying of the Presidential Flag!

Opening Monday (16 February) is “William Henry Harrison: Tippecanoe and History Too,” which will document W.H.’s life from 1790 until his death in 1841. (William Henry Harrison is the grandfather of Benjamin Harrison.)

Re-enactment tours of the Harrison Home will include Benjamin Harrison (pictured), his family members and household staff.

Visit the Harrison home Monday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tours are scheduled every half-hour.

Admission, which includes the new exhibit is $8 for adults (ages 18-64), $6 for seniors (65 and older) and $3 for children (5-17).

The home is owned by the President Benjamin Harrison Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, which seeks to increase public understanding of, appreciation for, and participation in the American system of self-government through the life stories of an American President.
