Life At North Bend
William Henry Harrison Memorial Trail
As the War of 1812 concluded, William Henry Harrison resigned his post, content to make public appearances and live a settled life with his family here in North Bend.
Though his presidential campaign would later claim that the former general spent these years in a log cabin drinking hard cider, this was hardly the case. Harrison didn't like to drink; this "log cabin candidate” lived in a mansion.
The Harrisons were well known for their gracious hospitality. On Sundays, entire church congregations came to the house to dine and socialize. Many travelers, from politicians to trappers, were said to have stopped at the Harrison residence located a few blocks from here.
Home Of Two Presidents
North Bend is the home to the ninth president William Henry Harrison. It is also the birthplace of the 23rd president, Benjamin Harrison. Quincy, Massachusetts, home to John Adams and John Quincy Adams, is the only other community that can lay claim to two presidents.
