The Harding Home, built in 1891, was the home to Warren and Florence Harding for 30 years. They moved from their Marion home to the White House when Harding was inaugurated as the 29th President of the United States in March 1921. The home is 95 percent original in content and the collection contains more than 5,000 items, making it a gem among house museums and presidential sites. The Harding Home has been open as a museum since 1926. The Harding Home Presidential Site, Marion Technical College, and the Ohio History Connection are in the midst of a project called Harding 2020. This project includes the full restoration of the Harding Home, grounds, Press House, and the construction of the Warren G. Harding Presidential Library and Museum. The project will be completed in 2020, the 100th anniversary of Harding's front porch campaign and presidential election.

  • Very well maintained home with the original furnishings and some restored replicas. Great new museum. The memorial site is a nice park setting.

  • The house has been painstakingly renovated to the condition it was in when he was campaigning for President. We had a great tour guide for the informative 45 minutes that includes the first and second floors. The museum is new and very well done with excellent displays and artifacts. Highly recommend visiting this presidential home.
  • My Wife and I spent an afternoon here in June of 2022. The tour of the home was great and our guide was excellent. There were only 4 of us on the tour so I felt like we got a lot of "extras". The museum is very well done and had several great and unique exhibits. If you're in the area you definitely should stop in. Make sure you tour the home and the museum.
