1. Death of a President Marker
Inscription.  
William Henry Harrison was the first president to die in office. He served only thirty-two days. The nation had never before mourned a sitting president.

Harrison's body was placed in a glass covered coffin in the East Room of the White House. Streets in Washington were covered in black crepe. At the funeral, fourteen military companies marched down Pennsylvania Ave. Harrison's horse was saddled and followed the procession, riderless.

The Long Road Home
William Henry Harrison first traveled to the Ohio River in 1791 the river led the young Virginian to the Northwest Territory and to North Bend.

William Henry Harrison traveled down that familiar river one last time in July of 1841. Fifty years after arriving in Ohio, following a career as an officer, a governor, and a president, Harrison was laid to rest in his adopted home.
