Anyone interested in the history of our country and just history in general MUST tour this site. The home contained many artifacts and historical pieces from the Harrison family. The guide was very knowledgeable but, a little winded sometimes.

The home has been restored to what it was in Harrison's lifetime. 80% of the furnishings are his. What a treat. Linda was a great guide. There are elevators for those of us who are challenged by steep winding stairs.

Most of the items in the house were items that belonged to the president (and Miami OH graduate). If you like history, this is worth it. It is $10, but there are some discounts for AAA, seniors and children. It is a nice tour and...More
