Legacy Projects > Celebrating Indiana’s Presidential History Celebrating Indiana’s Presidential History

Built in the 1880s, the Dunham House has a unique Hoosier history that is representative of the diversity of Indiana. The land this house sits on was purchased by Jacob Dunham, fourth great-grandfather of President Barrack Obama, who built the home in the 1880s. The Dunham House sits on land that was known as the Miami Reserve, sacred ground to Native Americans before it became Tipton County in 1844. In the spirit of the historic 200th anniversary of the state of Indiana, the Dunham House Educational Foundation will celebrate by opening up this historic house for free tours to the general public. It will tell the story of Indiana’s diverse history of Native Americans, frontier pioneers, immigrants, and the Hoosier family that gave us the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama.
