The centerpiece of Old Glory, New Vision is a new public gateway that will sustain the purpose and increase the prominence of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site. It will create exciting opportunities for engagement, enhance connectivity in downtown neighborhoods, and celebrate the legacy of Benjamin Harrison in new and beautiful ways.
We should not forget that Benjamin Harrison—Hoosier; citizen soldier; African-American voting rights advocate—was the 23rd president of the United States and 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 our 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 critical maintenance and renovations. Over $1 million of our fundraising efforts will ensure the home is structurally and functionally sound well into the future, and ready to once again 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.
