A mansion and museum built by Grenville Dodge in 1869 and furnished with remarkable antiques. Dodge was a Civil War general, Transcontinental Railroad builder, banker and politician. In the fall of 1961, the home of General Grenville M. Dodge was designated a National Historic Landmark. This special honor was bestowed upon the home of General GM Dodge, not because of the house itself, but rather because of the man who lived in it. To achieve this designation the site must have local, state, and national significance. The General's home was not only the first National Historic Landmark in Council Bluffs, but it is the only registered National Historic Landmark in the city. Currently there are 26 National Historic Landmarks in Iowa; the Historic General Dodge House has the distinction of being the second site in the state of Iowa to receive this honor.
