The President Benjamin Harrison Home used to be his actual home, but now it's a museum. Many of the things in the museum actually belonged to the Harrisons (Benjamin Harrison was the 23rd President of the U.S. He was also the President, 100 years after the first President. Ten of the rooms are actually filled as if they would have been filled, back in the day. One floor is dedicated to exhibits that change periodically. During the Halloween season, there are ghostly tours. These tours usually involve past Presidents in some manner or another, or other local authorities. Admission is $6 for adults and $5 for seniors or for the group rate. Children under 18 are $3 and preschoolers are free. more
