Went to President Harrison's gravesite, then visited his home. Very authentic walk back into time. Kitchen had a hand pump in the kitchen sink. Very cool office/ library where he worked at home. Really enjoyed the visit.

A great tour guide and a great sense of the intellectualism of this president. Great artifacts and the tour of this Victorian house takes you back into time. Worth the tour especially history buffs.
