Located just nine miles from downtown Indianapolis, historic Fort Harrison sits atop a scenic campus overlooking a 1700 acre state park (boasting a championship caliber Pete Dye golf course) and offers renovated historic homes formerly occupied by officers and generals, new residential communities and senior living apartments, a continued military presence with more than 4000 employees strong at the Defense Finance and Accounting Services Center and a home to City of Lawrence offices and Greater Lawrence Chamber of Commerce.
