Welcome to the Harding Home
Don't Miss the Next Fireside Chat!
The last of our three-part Fireside Chats is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. at Ohio State University Marion. We'll be investigating the little-known life of Florence Harding's son, Marshall DeWolfe, and sharing our new research with you! This is a casual, interactive program where our audience can offer opinions, ask questions and discuss theories.
Join us in the Guthery Community Room in the 2nd floor of OSUM's Maynard Hall. Grab a cookie and a steaming cup of coffee or cocoa as you come in and prepare for a fun evening!

About our collection
The Famous Haunted Clock
The Harding Home is a gem among Presidential sites and historical homes because of the high percentage of original objects. Here, you'll see many personal items used by the Hardings, as well as mementos from the White House. One of the most famous objects in the Home is the eight-day clock. The clock supposedly is haunted and stopped at the exact time that President Harding died in San Francisco on Aug. 2, 1923. It reportedly has stopped on some of the anniversaries of his death since 1923; the most recent was in 2000. Don't worry, we'll be watching closely to see what happens on Aug. 2, 2013!
