Eugene V Debs Museum

451 North 8th Street
Terre Haute, IN 47807


Eugene V. Debs Home Museum, a State and National Historic Landmark, open with free admission. Eugene V. Debs, born in 1855 in Terre Haute, Indiana, was a pioneer of the labor movement and democratic socialism in America and a champion of peace and human rights.

The Debs house was built in 1890 and was home to Eugene and Kate Debs until his death in 1926 and hers a decade later. The house is a fine example of Midwest Late-Victorian architecture, restored beautifully. The eight rooms of the first and second floors contain much of the original furniture as well as family photographs and personal belongings, campaign posters and buttons, and correspondence with such famous persons as Upton Sinclair, James Whitcomb Riley, and Carl Sandburg. The third floor features the famous murals of local artist John Laska, and the walls of the memorial garden display plaques honoring pioneers of the American labor movement.
