Dodge House-Historic General, Council Bluffs

(4.3/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
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. The U.S. Department of the Interior designated the house a National Historic Landmark in 1961. Since 1964, a Board of Trustees has been restoring the home to the period of the general, 1869-1916, and it is now maintained as a house museum.

  • This is an amazingly well preserved museum with great knowledgeable guides. If you want to learn a little about the people who shaped the Council Bluffs/ Omaha area see it first hand here.
  • Very cool if you like history. My 7 year old even liked it.
  • Great place to visit. But if you have any handicaps like needing a wheelchair you might find it hard to visit.
  • Went during railroad days and would highly recommend
  • Volunteers are very informative & kind!
