A Trip to Unify will transport you back to 1891 when President Harrison took his historic train trip: 10,000 miles, 150 speeches, 30 days, 21 states, and one big idea!
Harrison gave nearly 150 speeches in 30 days on this trip, stretching from Washington D.C. to the California coast. This was a groundbreaking moment for the American presidency.
“Almost all the artifacts used in the exhibit are heartfelt gifts to Benjamin Harrison from the communities he visited on his 10,000 mile train trip—many representing the very best these burgeoning communities had to offer,” said Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site CEO, Charlie Hyde.
The exhibit is part of the New Century Curator Initiative, a compelling partnership between the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site and IUPUI’s Museum Studies program. This partnership offers an innovative opportunity for Museum Studies students to assist in developing an exhibit for the Presidential Site.
Admission included in the price of daily tours.
Grand Opening Reception: Thursday, January 25, 5:30-7 pm. Reserve your spot today.
