The William Henry Harrison Presidential Mansion & Visitor's Center

Funding Amount:

The William Henry Harrison Presidential Mansion and Visitors Center project is a significant investment in the preservation of Indiana’s history as Harrison’s contributions helped shape the future of the United States, and his welcoming personality played an important role in his unchartered success.

The new 15,000-square-foot Harrison Presidential Visitors Center will welcome visitors to explore the history of the local surroundings and gain an understanding of the historical importance of the State of Indiana. The Visitors Center will be located adjacent to the Presidential Mansion and the Robert E. Green Activities Center – a popular destination for large banquets and celebrations that will be incorporated into the historic complex.

The Center will feature the following:

  • A museum and theatre room, featuring films illustrating Harrison’s contributions to Indiana and the United States
  • Display areas of items from Harrison’s home and his life
  • A classroom/meeting room for community and educational events
  • Harrison Presidential Mansion Office
  • A gift shop and public restrooms

This cultural project will add to West Central Indiana’s tourist destination amenities.
