New Tree Dedicated

President Benjamin Harrison, 23rd president of the United States, was in Richmond in 1895 doing law work for a local trial.  While in the community, local city fathers invited him to take part in the planting of a white ash tree in Glen Miller Park.  On June 6, 2009 his great-grandson, Dr. Benjamin Harrison Walker visited the community to help plant a new tulip tree near the original ash tree.  The tulip tree is the Indiana state tree.
