Harding Memorial Re-Visited
When my husband and I visited the Harding Memorial in 2009, the Memorial was roped off with orange tape due to renovations. Now visitors can climb the steps of the Harding Memorial again. The Harding Memorial is the final resting place of our 29th American President, Warren G. Harding, who died in 1923, and his wife, the former Florence Kling, who died in 1924.
The Harding Memorial was made from Georgia marble supplied from the Georgia Marble Company in Tate, Georgia, and has classical Doric features. If you are ever in Ohio, consider visiting the Harding Home and Memorial in Marion, Ohio. The memorial is an awe-inspiring sight, and a tour of the Harding Home provides many historical facts about our 29th U.S. President and his wife.
Many thanks to my husband, who is a fellow history fan, and an extraordinary chauffeur!
