The Harding Home Presidential Site is comprised of two buildings, the green-painted Harding Home and the Press House, the white cottage located slightly east and at the rear of the Harding Home.
Begin your experience by entering the Press House, the cottage built in 1920 for the press corps covering Warren Harding’s Front Porch Campaign. In the Press House, you will pay your admission fees, browse the gift shop and museum, and view a 15-minute film about the Hardings.
The tour guide will escort you to the front porch of the Harding Home, where your tour will begin. Our talented tour guides do not memorize scripts – they pull from a stockpile of well-documented research that we constantly update to give you the most accurate information possible. Our tours are interactive, so feel free to ask questions!
The tour is about an hour in length, so allow 1.5 hours on site total. The house is 95 percent original, and most of the objects are original. We do not allow photography inside the Home, but take as many photos as you’d like outside or in the Press House.
Before you leave the site, take a peek inside the mobile voting booth near the Press House. Voting booths like this one were used from 1880-1930 throughout the Midwest on election day.
