When I was growing up, we were told that Harding, who worked himself up in life, was a failure as a president. The museum, and even more our tour guide, tell a different story. He was a success in that most of his campaign program was adopted into law during his 2½ years in the White House, his administration was racked with scandals which became apparent to him just before his death. Whether, had he lived, he would have covered up or cleaned house is one of the great unknowns in history. Beautiful house, and even more interesting is the story of his wife, Florence, who was disinherited by her father for getting married twice (Harding being the second) without his approval. If you are in the area, see it.
