Description

This is the main parlor of what was originally the stone residence of John Harris, Jr. (1727-1791), the founder of Harrisburg, which he erected around the end of the French and Indian War in 1766. In 1785, the plan of Harrisburg was laid out in the home by Harris and his son-in-law, William Maclay, one of the first U. S. Senators. Simon Cameron, President Lincoln’s first Secretary of War, acquired the property in 1863 for use as his home and undertook extensive renovations of the period. The house in now headquarters to the Historical Society of Dauphin County and operates as a museum.
