Grouseland’s Annual Dinner highlights William Henry Harrison’s early life as a “Child of the Revolution,” Tuesday, April 17.

March 30, 2012 – Vincennes, IN

William Henry Harrison became the President of the United States, served as an army general in the War of 1812, and was the first governor of the Indiana Territory in Vincennes.

How did he become such an accomplished and ambitious man?  What lessons can we learn today about public service and aspiring to greatness?

These are the questions that will be explored by Dr. Henrik Booraem, author of A Child of the Revolution: William Henry Harrison and His World, 1773-1798, at Grouseland Foundation’s Annual Dinner, Tuesday, April 17, 2012, in Vincennes.

Available in May 2012 (Kent St. University Press); Pre-Orders will be taken at Grouseland's Annual Dinner.

According to Booraem, although Harrison was a “Virginian on the Ohio Valley frontier … Harrison was different from most … His best friends were Northern; he married a Northern girl; and he left Virginia partly because he disapproved of its religious and social values.”  Booraem continues, “Harrison’s main interests included fighting the British whose troops had destroyed his family plantation when he was a child, and studying the Indians of the Northwest,” about whom he would write “a definitive history.”  Dr. Booraem’s book on Harrison’s early life is forthcoming in May through Kent State University Press, and pre-orders will be sold at the dinner.  Booraem teaches American history in the Philadelphia area and has authored numerous books about American presidents.

Grouseland Foundation preserves and operates Harrison’s Indiana Territorial Mansion, “Grouseland,” in Vincennes, Indiana.  Grouseland’s Annual Dinner highlights the Foundation’s mission of preserving Harrison’s historic home but also in educating and inspiring the public to discover Indiana’s rich and significant past.

The Annual Dinner will take place in the Green Activities Center on the campus of Vincennes University, which is adjacent to Grouseland, located at 3 West Scott Street in Vincennes.  A pre-dinner reception will be offered on the lawn at Grouseland at 5:30 PM on April 17, followed by the dinner and program at 6:30 PM.  Tickets are $25.00 in advance or $30.00 at the door.  The reception is an additional $10.00, and reservations are required for both.

Fan of Grouseland? Consider Volunteering to Support Our Educational Mission

Are you inspired by the rich history of Vincennes, Indiana’s First City?  Do you have some time to share that inspiration with others?  Have you been reluctant in the past to step forward and ask, “How can I help?”  Volunteering at William Henry Harrison’s “Grouseland” just might be the volunteer opportunity that you have been seeking.

Volunteers help decorate Grouseland annually at Christmas time.

Spring is the time of year that bus loads of school children come to visit Grouseland on field trips.  Personally, I made this same voyage in May 1984 from Sullivan County.  By then, Indiana history was well established as my favorite class in school, and it still has never been surpassed (Thank you, Mrs. Phillips!).  However, my Indiana history field trip to Vincennes was nothing short of transformational.

In my ten year-old imagination, I was transported in time.  History became three dimensional, and it afforded me an appreciation for what it meant to be from Indiana in a positive way that has reverberated throughout my life ever since.  That I became the director at Grouseland 25 years later was no accident.

Being a part of Grouseland’s mission of preservation and education continues to be the honor of my life.  I have the privilege of sharing my enthusiastic passion for Indiana history and the treasures of Historic Vincennes with the public.  It is especially rewarding to see the wide-eyed awe of fourth graders, who have never been to a historic home before, as they too are transported back in time and discover how interesting and fun history can be.

Serving Grouseland’s mission is an opportunity that is accessible to those who have the time and inclination.  Because we work with children, it

Long-time Grouseland volunteer, Winnie Berry, helps catalog Grouseland's extensive collection of ladies' fans.

is important that we screen all potential volunteers.  Generally, we give tours of the Mansion, and this is the area in which we require the most support from volunteers.  However, there are other tasks in which volunteers can help, including special events, office assistance, gift shop and welcoming visitors, and some museum collection and grounds care.  Those with special skills and interests are encouraged to let us know what you can do.  Some projects require more expertise than others.  Most anyone can help give tours of the Mansion, and we have a gradual process of training, so that you will learn more about our story as you learn to share it with others.   We will spend as much individualized time with you as needed, so that you can feel comfortable and confident in your generous service.

Your time is valuable and limited, and we want to ensure that you have the most positive, fulfilling and impactful experience possible.

To learn more about volunteer opportunities at Grouseland, please email or call (812) 882-2096.  We will be happy speak with you, show you around, and share with you the work that we are privileged to do everyday.  Please join us!

Grouseland Rifle Crafted by First Indiana Sheriff Designated Official State Rifle

Vincennes, Indiana – March 7, 2012 – The first sheriff in what became the State of Indiana, John Small (1768 – 1821), was not only a militia captain, tavern-keeper and territorial legislator; he was also a master artist and craftsman, particularly as a gunsmith.

The Official Rifle of the State of Indiana

Grouseland Foundation, stewards of the President William Henry Harrison Home, “Grouseland,” in Vincennes, Indiana, is proud to own one of only six known remaining long rifles made by John Small, the first sheriff of Knox County, Indiana, at a time when Knox County extended across the current states of Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan.

House Bill 1283 in the Indiana General Assembly, which passed on March 6, 2012 by a vote of 78-2, was amended by Sen. John Waterman (R-39,Sullivan) to designate the “Grouseland Rifle” as the official rifle of Indiana.  The legislation was co-authored in the House of Representatives by Rep. Kathy K Richardson (R-29, Noblesville), Rep. Matt Pierce (D-61, Bloomington), and Rep. Thomas E. Saunders (R-54, Lewisville).  Senate sponsors were Sen. Beverly Gard (R-28, Greenfield), Sen. Vi Simpson (D-40, Bloomington) and Sen. Lindel Hume (D- 48, Princeton).

State Senator John Waterman (R-Shelburn), stated, “What makes this story particularly interesting, and why I believe the Grouseland Rifle is worthy of being named the Indiana State Rifle, is because John Small was also commissioned by William Henry Harrison to design the Seal of the Indiana Territory – which later became the Indiana State Seal.”

Waterman continues, “We do not know if this rifle was carried in a famed frontier battle, but it most certainly provided food and protection to a pioneer family of early Indiana.   This rifle and its maker are both integral parts of Indiana history and as such, the rifle is worthy of its designation as the Indiana State Rifle.”

John Small came to the American colonies with his family from Ireland in 1768 and was raised in Pennsylvania.  At the age of 14, he had begun his career as a gunsmith, serving at Fort Pitt and as a militia soldier during the American Revolution.

Small moved to Vincennes by 1785 and established himself as a merchant and gunsmith.  He was appointed an officer of the local militia and in April 1786, led a force of mounted militia into a fight with Piankeshaw Indians, which became known as the Battle of the Embarras.

In 1788, Small opened a tavern on the banks of the Wabash which was eventually used as the first Knox County Courthouse between 1790 and 1794, and the Indiana territorial legislature met there before the territorial capitol building was built around 1805. In 1797, Small established the first ferry across the Wabash River from his tavern property.

In 1799, Small was the last representative of Knox County to the Northwest Territory Legislature just before the Indiana Territory was founded in 1800.  The following year, he was appointed Surveyor of Lands for Knox County and served as Adjutant General of the territorial militia under Governor Harrison.

John Small made the “Grouseland Rifle” sometime between 1803 and 1812 during the “Golden Age” of these long barreled rifles.  Small’s Grouseland Long Rifle is unusually long (61 ½”), slender and graceful.  It has elaborate pierced silver and brass inlays.  The octagonal barrel has a silver plate on the top marked “Jn. Small Vincennes.”

John Small was considered a master woodworker, ironsmith, and his brass and silver work show he was the equal of any artisan of the period.  As a silversmith he has been called the Paul Revere of the frontier.

Special features on the rifle include the round silver medallion engraved with the emblem of the United States and the angel Gabriel on the brass patch box (opposite the medallion).   The delicate silver inlay strung atop the gun butt is representative of only the finest craftsmanship.

The rifle was purchased by the Grouseland Foundation in 2004, and is on display at the Harrison Mansion (3 West Scott Street, Vincennes).  One John Small Rifle, which was owned by William Clark (of Lewis & Clark), is on display at the Missouri Historical Society and was possibly carried throughout the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Grouseland to host “Brunch with Anna Harrison – The Story That Was Never Told” on March 24, 2012

Vincennes, Indiana – February 23, 2012 –  “Anna Symmes Harrison, was completely and personally intertwined with the succession of events that took place in the U.S. between 1775 and 1864.  You might say she was the original Daughter of the American Revolution …” So begins author and public historian, Cynthia Ogorek, describing the life of the first First Lady of the United States to have received a public school education, Mrs. William Henry Harrison.

Grouseland Foundation, which oversees the Harrisons’ Indiana Territorial Mansion, “Grouseland” in Vincennes, Indiana, will host “Brunch with Anna Harrison – The Story That Was Never Told,” a catered brunch and presentation by Ogorek at 10:30 AM, on Saturday, March 24, 2012, in the Fort Sackville Room in the Beckes Student Union (College and 2nd St.) on the campus of Vincennes University. 

In addition to being married to one of the most ubiquitous of frontier leaders, 9th President William Henry Harrison, Anna Symmes Harrison was also born into a prominent family.  Her father was a wealthy landowner and one of the first judges in the Northwest Territory. 

Having been raised in comfort and well-educated on the east coast, Anna Symmes lived with almost constant loss and loneliness, surviving the deaths of her mother, only sister, her presidential husband, and eight of her ten children.  Anna also adapted to tremendous adversity, adjusting to the challenges of living on the frontier and becoming a very public wife while enduring long and almost continuous confinements that accompanied dangerous nineteenth century childbirth.

Because of her frequent bouts of poor health and her husband’s sudden death after taking office, Anna Harrison is the only First Lady of the United States, who never had the opportunity to assume her official duties in the White House.  Despite all her hardships, Anna Harrison lived almost 90 years.

Ogorek will explore these issues in more depth as the keynote speaker at “Brunch with Anna Harrison – The Story That Was Never Told,” the fruit of her research into fifteen First Ladies from the Midwest, of whom Anna Harrison is the earliest, having first served as the First Lady of the Indiana Territory in at Grouseland in Vincennes.

“We want to give residents and out-of-town visitors of Vincennes the opportunity to discover our frontier political and cultural heritage from a woman’s point-of-view.” says Lisa Ice-Jones, Grouseland Foundation’s Programming Chairperson.  “As the First Lady of Grouseland, Anna’s experience was unique and certainly not typical of a pioneer woman, but she served as a long-suffering eyewitness to the birth of our nation.  She also provided a great deal of invisible support to her husband’s legendary career in public service.  We feel it is time to shine the spotlight on her great contributions.”  

Cynthia Ogorek is based in Calumet City, IL. Her search for information regarding Mrs. Harrison has taken her to archives in Ohio, New Jersey and Long Island, New York. She was quoted for the entry about Anna Harrison in the U.S. News and World Report’s “First Ladies” special edition (2010). Cynthia is the author of Along the Calumet River and The Lincoln Highway Around Chicago. Find out more about her at

Tickets for “Brunch with Anna Harrison – The Story That Was Never Told,” are $15 per person, and can be purchased at the door or in advance at Grouseland, 3 West Scott Street, Vincennes, IN; by emailing; or calling (812) 882-2096.  Advance reservations are strongly encouraged.

Grouseland to Host Bus Tour to Indianapolis, Nov. 9, 2011

September 23, 2011 – Grouseland Foundation is sponsoring a chartered bus tour from William Henry Harrison’s Grouseland (3 W.

Vincennes Local History Seminar Connects the Past to Today

Vincennes – August 16, 2011—The cradle of the state of Indiana as we know it today is Vincennes, Indiana’s First City and Territorial Capital.  The Vincennes State Historic Sites (VSHS) and Grouseland Foundation are partnering to continue the tradition of offering to interested adults an engaging experience to learn more about the rich local history of Vincennes.

The Vincennes Local History Seminar will meet on Monday evenings, from September 12 through December 12, 2011, in the Old State Bank, 112 N. 2nd St., Vincennes, unless otherwise indicated.  Special visits are planned for the George Rogers Clark National Historic Park, the Indiana Territorial Capital, and Grouseland.

Click on link to download registration brochure: VLHS Registration Brochure

The principal instructor for the seminar will be Richard Day (VSHS), with regular commentary from panelists Robert “Gus” Stevens and Dr. Dan Combs.  Deborah Kolb and Dan Sarell (both from Grouseland Foundation) will serve as the moderators.  A number of guest presenters will be joining specific sessions.

The class sessions will follow a chronological history of Vincennes, back to Native Americans before contact with Europeans, to the present, highlighting important aspects that have shaped the community, like the colonial fur-trade, industrialization, transportation, architecture, farming and religion.

The registration for the course is $75.00 per person, and the deadline is Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2011.  To register, call VSHS at (812) 882-7422, email, or visit the Log Cabin Visitors Center at 1 W. Harrison St., Vincennes.

Several years ago, noted attorney and Vincennes native, Rabb Emison, gathered a group of community-minded history enthusiasts to share their passion for the historical richness and cultural diversity of Vincennes with others.  The classes were enormously popular, so much so that they have continued to be offered annually.

Of particular note in 2011, VSHS is hosting the “Muster on the Wabash,” September 24-25, at Ft. Knox II (Ouabache Trails Park), marking the bicentennial of Harrison’s army of volunteers leaving Vincennes for what culminated in the Battle of Tippecanoe, November 7, 1811.  2011 also marks the centennial of Harrison’s home, Grouseland, being open as a museum.

Grouseland’s ongoing “First Families” heritage education program aims to raise awareness of Vincennes’ deep cultural roots by enlisting the participation of descendants of pre-statehood families, many of whom still live in Knox County.

The goal of these historical education efforts is always to connect the lessons of the past with the present and future, inspiring personal reflection and motivating historic preservation.
