This was the fourth Ohio president,

while seven Ohioan’s have made

it to the highest office in the land.

His Memorial built in 1926,

Located in Marion, Ohio.

Oldest daughter and her two sons,

Skyler and Micah, joined me to

tour this great mausoleum.

It certainly brings out your

sense of pride and respect

for our famous people who

became presidents.

  1. Robin, you promised something spectacular. This memorial does not disappoint. Also, I didn’t know Harding was the fourth president from Ohio. That is an interesting historical note, too. – Mike

    • I am happy to not disappoint you, Mike. I enjoyed when you explained about Tesla and showed the monuments in many different countries. You and Florence were my introduction to the world through the eyes of friends, who happened to be global explorers and “ex-pats!” โค

    • Like a circular Greek temple. Look mom no hands, doors (learned Thursday) or roof. What is most amazing is how fast the money was raised (including $200,000 from children donating pennies) and the memorial built. He died August 1923 and was built 1926. It would take a lot lot longer today.

      • I trust your research and the time element conjecture of from death until the memorial’s completion, if undertaken nowadays, Geoff. ๐Ÿ™‚
        I probably said this already but enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

  2. For those Republicans hoping for a brokered convention in Cleveland this summer (not happening). Senator Harding was not selected as the Republican nominee until the 10th ballot.

  3. There is so much for me to discover about Ohio. And, of course, Ohio is turning out to be probably the most important state in this country, so I had better get busy. Love the picture, Robin!

    • This is good to know about how Ohio is becoming prominent particularly in this year’s political arena. Thanks for the compliment on the picture, Beth. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • You deserve compliments, Robin. What a pleasure it has been to become acquainted with you. You are a treasured friend. โค

    • Natalie, I enjoyed your new gravatar! I have a new photo and know how to put it on a post; but forget how to change the gravatar. You are an amazing woman in so many ways! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

      • It took me a while but I finally got it done! Go up to the top of your blog where you see your existing photo and click on it. A page will then come up that allows you to edit your profile. And then you click on the photo and will ask you if you want to change the image. And then just follow what it tells you. At least I think that’s how I finally did it.๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. An impressive building, Robin. It’s interesting to me that so many of our “serious” buildings go back to Greek and Roman architecture (mausoleums, libraries, banks, and capitals). They sure are beautiful. The tree in the center is an interesting touch.

  5. It’s huge! I must admit I have never given President Harding much thought! I’ve enjoyed these last couple of posts and some of the information you’ve shared. Each of our Presidents has contributed to who we are as Americans.

  6. Definitely a spectacular monument, Presidents were well respected in years gone by, their monuments a testament to their value in the American peoples eyes.
    I wonder what Obama’s monument will be like?
    Kind regards.
