William Henry Harrison tomb
Description: This is the tomb of William Henry Harrison in North Bend, Ohio, in Hamilton County. The State of Ohio took ownership of the site in 1919. The eagle-topped pillars were added at this time. Construction of the 60-foot obelisk visible in the background began in 1924. Harrison was the ninth President of the United States and the first to die in office when he succumbed to pneumonia in April 1841, just a few weeks after his inauguration. Harrison personally chose his burial site. His wife, Anna Tuthill Symmes Harrison, along with two of their children and other relatives, are also buried here. View on Ohio Memory.
