Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is “Dishes, Pots, Pans, Silverware.” When visiting Indianapolis a year ago, my husband and I toured the home of PresidentBenjamin Harrison, the only president from Indiana that established residence there. Guided tours take visitors through the house.
Benjamin Harrison (grandson of president William Henry Harrison who died after one month in office( was a Republican, the 23rd president, serving from 1889 to 1893. He married twice, first to Caroline Scott, who died in 1892 and with whom he had two children, Russell and Mary.
He married his second wife, Mary Scott Lord, in 1896 and they had one child, Elizabeth. Harrison served only one term as president. He lost his reelection bid to Grover Cleveland, due to the unpopularity of high tariffs and high government spending.
Harrison was a conservationist and he created a number of national forest reserves. Six states were admitted to the Union during his tenure as president. (Source: Wikipedia).
