Warren G. Harding Home

Warren G. Harding launched himself into the White House in 1920 with his famous "front porch" campaign, which he conducted from his Victorian home in Marion, Ohio.

The restored house was built in 1891 and contains almost all original furnishings owned by President Harding and his wife Florence. The library was renovated in 2005. Adjacent to the Harding Home is a press house used during the 1920 campaign which now serves as a museum dedicated to President and Mrs. Harding's lives.

The Harding Tomb, the final resting place for President and Mrs. Harding, is located in Marion, a few miles away.

  • One State, Eight Presidents
    by Discover Ohio

    In the 50 years before the roaring 1920s, 10 men were elected President, eight hailed from Ohio--giving the state its nickname, "Mother of Presidents." From Civil War hero Gen. Ulysses S. Grant to Warren G. Harding, the list of Ohio presidents includes some of the most influential leaders in history.

    Whether you’re a history buff or just patriotic, you can embark on a multi-day journey visiting monuments and paying tribute to the nation’s former leaders.

    On Day One, visit the home of President Garfield and the National McKinley Birthplace Memorial, a 232-foot by 136-foot marble memorial. Don’t forget to stop by the National First Ladies’ Library.

    On Day Two, travel to the Hayes Presidential Center, which includes a museum, as well as the Hayes Tomb. Then venture to the Warren Harding Memorial.

    Day Three takes off at the National Air Force Museum. Check out the retired “Air Force One” that carried President Kennedy’s body to Washington, D.C.

    On Day Four, travel to the Cincinnati-area to visit the birthplace and boyhood homes of Presidents William Howard Taft and Ulysses S. Grant.
