The Harding Tomb
Delaware Avenue at Veterans Park

The Harding Tomb, final resting place of President and Mrs. Warren G. Harding, is widely regarded as the most impressive presidential monument outside of Washington, D.C.  Dedicated by President Herbert Hoover in 1931, the massive white marble structure is 103 feet in diameter and 53 feet high.  The memorial is important in American history because it is one of the last of the elaborate presidential tombs.  The United State Army will conduct the annual wreath-laying ceremony honoring the 29th President of the United States, highlighted by the placing of a wreath designed and presented by the White House.
