About Grouseland

Grouseland is the historic mansion of Indiana Territorial Governor and later 9th President of the United States, William Henry Harrison, in Vincennes, Indiana. Grouseland is a National Historic Landmark, which was built in 1803-04, the first brick home built in Indiana.

The Harrison Mansion is open for tours 7 days a week (10:00 – 5:00).  Admission is $5 adults / $4 seniors / $3 children and students.  Special rates available for tours planned through the Vincennes-Knox Co. Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (Call 812-886-0400 for details).  Winter Hours (January-February), 11:00 – 4:00, closed Mondays.  Closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Grouseland was saved and restored by the Francis Vigo Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1909, and has been open for tours since 1911, achieving National Landmark status in 1960 (among the first 3 in Indiana).

Today, Grouseland is poised to continue a legacy of excellence in preservation and heritage education. As a 501(c)3 non-profit museum, Grouseland does not rely on any government entity for financial support. We rely on friends and partners to continue and advance our mission.
