Welcome to Historic Fort Benjamin Harrison!


From BRAC to Back... The Successful Redevelopment of Fort Benjamin Harrison

Fort Benjamin Harrison Army Base was established in 1903 and was named after the 23rd President of the United States. Today, it is a vibrant residential, retail and business community that is widely recognized as the model for reuse and redevelopment of a military installation. When the base closed in 1995, community leaders knew they had challenges ahead and they met them with enthusiasm . . . and careful planning. Already a destination, Fort Benjamin Harrison continues to redevelop and is nearing its final leg in its journey toward the finish line.
