Grouseland

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.
