Tomb of William Henry Harrison in North Bend, Hamilton County, Ohio, as it appeared in 1895. The stucco covering the brick and the flagstone roof were added to the tomb in 1879. Harrison was the ninth President of the United States and the first to die in office when he succumbed to pneumonia in April 1841, just a few weeks after his inauguration. Harrison personally chose his burial site. His wife, Anna Tuthill Symmes Harrison, along with two of their children and other relatives, are also buried there.
