Very interesting Historical location which is a must see if you are staying close by! They have a lot of the General Dodge’s property and it is a beautifully kept and decorated home, specially now in December! I highly recommend this as it is great for any age to learn some history!

If you are a history buff then this is a must see. I have been through the house several times and have found new items of interest everytime. Christmas time is a great time to visit, but make sure to check their website as holiday hrs vary. The Didge house was ahead of it's time when built. Council Bluffs was considered the frontier and the launching point of the railroads push westward. I was amazed at the modern conveniences like hot and cold running water as well central heating. On the first floor is a display of items from the 1800's that is added to on a regular basis. The Dodge house is truly a gem of Council Bluffs.

It was great to see General Dodge's house after going to the Union Pacific museum and the Little Bighorn battlesite. He was an impressive man and his house is gorgeous. It may have been the most impressive home in the plains during Dodge's lifetime.
