Built in 1766 by the founder of Harrisburg, this National Historic Landmark was enlarged and significantly altered during the Civil War by Harris-Simon Cameron, Lincoln's first Secretary of War. Harris-Simon Cameron occupied the home until his death in 1889, and the home remained in the Harris-Simon Cameron family until 1941. Period rooms and exhibits highlight regional and national history through fine furniture, art, toys, music boxes and more. A grand Victorian parlor features 14-foot pier mirrors from Paris, marble fireplaces, rare crackle glass windows and more. Step into an 1840s bedroom, a dazzling Art Deco master bath and rooms where Harrisburg and Dauphin County were formed - where Indian treaties were signed and where important people helped to shape our history.
