Most Popular Area Attractions

Basilica & National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation

Made into a national a shrine by U.S. Congress, Our Lady of Consolation is one of two basilicas in Ohio. The shrine is located in central Ohio near Wapakoneta and is the site of the annual pilgrimage of Roman Catholics to mark the Feast of the Assumption of Mary.

The complex has multiple properties representing the historic nature of the shrine – perhaps most impressive is the original wooden church built in 1875 that is still in use. The basilica and nearby shrine park are a must-see for any fan of ancient stone and European style architecture.

Warren G. Harding Home

Built in 1891, the Warren G. Harding House is located in the central Ohio city of Marion. The Harding House preserves the former home of 29th President Warren G. Harding and First Lady Florence Mabel Harding from 1891 to 1921.

This Queen Anne-style historic home is a U.S. National Historic Landmark found on the National Register of Historic Places. This now-home museum is operated and maintained by the Ohio Historical Society.

Visitors to the Harding Home Presidential Site may peruse more than 5,000 Warren-family artifacts, and enjoy a 1.5-hour tour of the home. Tours begin at the Press House, and are available by appointment only from May through November.

Warren Harding Tomb

Also referred to as the Harding Memorial, the Warren Harding Tomb is located at Harding Memorial Park in the central Ohio city of Marion. The Harding Tomb commemorates the gravesite of 29th President Warren G. Harding and First Lady Florence Kling Harding.

Located along Vernon Heights Boulevard at Delaware Avenue, the Marion Cemetery covers two acres and surrounds the Harding Tomb. President Herbert Hoover dedicated the circular, white-marble monument in 1931.
