Brief DescriptionThis three-story, 14-room, lavish Victorian home, is one of Iowa's premier historic homes.
CategoryHistoric Site
DescriptionPerhaps one of Council Bluffs' most famous residents, Gen. Grenville M. Dodge has been called the greatest railroad builder of all time. A Civil War veteran, Dodge's involvement in political, financial and military affairs made him an associate of many of the most influential Americans of his time and counsel to presidents, including Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. In 1869, Dodge built his handsome Victorian home at 605 Third Street at the cost of $35,000, a lavish sum for that day. The fourteen-room, three-story mansion stands on a high terrace overlooking the Missouri Valley, and displays such architectural features as parquet floors, cherry, walnut and butternut woodwork, and a number of modern conveniences quite unusual for the period.
