This is just a quick stop to park and walk up around. Its a beautiful monument with the President and his wife buried inside, which is gated, but you can see inside and even take photos. There is a small structure in front of it in which you can walk around and read information about the Hardings.

This very accessible monument for the 29th President of the United States Warren G Harding. An average president who surrounded himself with crooks, shelters and good looking women who were not his wife.

The memorial is a beautiful place to visit. The kids like to runaround and play in the summer and sled on the hill in the winter.

A monument to a good president who has been unjustly deemed as a poor president. The people of Marion came together to built this absolutely beautiful tribute to President and Mrs. Harding used as his final resting spot.

I stopped by here on my way to the hotel.... I grew up close to hear and visited this memorial quite a bit in my life..... it still is cool to know the President of the USA is buried in there, along with his wife..... it's still a cool USA experience!!!!!

This is one of the most impressive presidential burial sites you will see in the nation! Marion is lucky to have such a national draw. The Memorial (tomb) sits in a beautiful part-time setting, and the structure itself is amazing. It does not, however, sit atop "a well-groomed" hill. No hills in sight.

The marble building is impressive with its open columns and sits high on a groomed hill. You can get a good view up there of the city as well.

Striking design set among a wooded area. There are several small panels on the walkway to tell the story of the Hardings and the memorial
