On the estate of William Henry Harrison in North Bend, Ohio, the second son of John Scott and Elizabeth Harrison was born on Aug. 20, 1833.  Benjamin Harrison was born in “The Big House” on his grandfather’s estate.  The house later burned down, but was located at the intersection of Symmes and Washington avenues.  A historic marker commemorates Harrison’s birthplace.

Benjamin Harrison was born on a family farm in the “Big House,” which burned down in 1858.
