3 West Scott Street

Grouseland is the elegant Georgian/Federal home completed in 1804, which served as the home of William Henry Harrison and his family when he was Governor of the Indiana Territory (1800-1812).  The first brick home in Indiana and a National Historic Landmark, the house was more than a residence. This magnificent building was the center of government for the Indiana Territory and also served as a fortress in times of unrest.

Harrison was elected ninth President of the United States in 1840, so the home is a presidential site and exhibits contain colorful artifacts from the first modern presidential campaign and the Battle of Tippecanoe.

I grew up here in Vincennes. There is so much interesting history. Beautiful sites and awesome guides if you need them. I love my home town and sharing its history and beauty.

Really enjoyed the tour and while dogs cannot come in the house, they welcome them on the grounds (on leash and clean up after, of course).

Love this place. It's a must see for learning about our founding fathers and the early days of the Republic.
