Live Family Christmas at the President Benjamin Harrison Home

Indianapolis history has many iconic names and faces that litter the Circle City. From Booth Tarkington and James Whitcomb Riley to the famous President Benjamin Harrison, Hoosiers take pride in their hometown history makers. This Christmas celebrate Hoosier heritage at the President Benjamin Harrison Home. This December 12 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm visit the President Benjamin Harrison Home to take part in the elegance of a Live Family Christmas. See how the historic President from Indiana celebrated when he was home for the holidays.

This Saturday, December 12, the President Benjamin Harrison Home will celebrate Christmas with all the dignity and class of 1888. Live actors portraying President Benjamin Harrison, Mrs. Harrison, their family from Ohio, their children and their staff will enact the festive celebrations that Harrison himself would have taken part in. See them in the formal elegance of the main dining room, gathered round a table fit for a king. Observe them in different scenes from Christmas Day as you tour the house.

Enjoy the luscious greenery through the historic home, with large Christmas trees decorated to the hilt. Period toys galore spill out from underneath the tree and fill the nursery. Indianapolis kids will love seeing the old fashioned dolls, trains, buggies, Whirlie-gigs and more that litter the floors of the children’s rooms in the President Benjamin Harrison home. Experience the traditions of a nineteenth century Christmas in an authentic setting at the Live Family Christmas.

Tours of the house will begin every hour and half hour from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Tickets are $9.00 for adults and $4.00 for students, ages five to seventeen. For more information about this very special Indianapolis event, visit the President Benjamin Harrison Home’s official website.
