Description

The William Henry Harrison Mansion was built when he served as the first governor of the Indiana Territory (1800-1812). Called the “White House of the West,” Grouseland was the first brick home in the Indiana Territory. In the frontier village of Vincennes it seemed a palatial mansion. It was built on a knoll overlooking the Wabash River near a walnut grove. Grouseland occupies an important place in American history as several treaties with Native Americans were signed in the Council Chamber.

Grouseland is the elegant Georgian home built in 1803 by William Henry Harrison when he was Governor of the Indiana Territory. 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.

Grouseland’s popular Festival of Quilts returns on October 15 and 16, 2010 and will be held at the Vincennes University Green Activity Center in Vincennes, IN. Please click on the links below to learn more about the show, the Hoffman Challenge as well as the beautiful quilt which will be given away in May of 2010 during the annual Candlelight Tour of Grouseland.
