We should not forget that Benjamin Harrison—Hoosier; citizen soldier; African-American voting rights advocate—was the 23rd president of the United States and the only president ever elected from Indiana. And we should not forget the monumental significance of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site itself.
The Old Glory, New Vision capital campaign will make the Presidential Site truly unforgettable. By raising $6 million, we will transform our grounds, elevate our national profile, and reclaim our shared place in the landscape of American history.Donate
At the heart of the Presidential Site is the Harrison residence itself. Built nearly 150 years ago by Benjamin and Caroline Harrison, its stone and brick walls contain more history per square inch than many larger museums. However, it is in need of essential maintenance and renovations. Over $1 million of our fundraising efforts will ensure the home continues to be structurally and functionally sound well into the future, and continues to educate and serve tens of thousands of students and visitors each year. Your investment in the Old Glory, New Vision capital campaign compounds interest in our shared history, and helps inform conversations our country is having today about shaping tomorrow.
Thanks to donors like you, we are getting closer to our goal every day. With your support, we can make this once-in-a-generation project a reality, and sustain the legacy of Indiana’s only elected president today, tomorrow, and for the century to come. Don’t wait. Donate Now.
