  • This place was more interesting and extravagant than I had guessed! General Dodge had a very interesting and productive life with the military spanning Indian wars to Civil War and then helping with the transcontinental railroad. General Dodge is one of the two men shaking hands in the famous picture with the two trains meeting on the at the golden spike place. I would recommend this place to anybody. You may take a guided or self-guided tour. The house is just as interesting as the man. I learned a lot!
  • Wonderful 4 story historic home with good interpretation. Not good for lower extremity handicapped or eldery due to stairs. I do not know how people in that century got to their bedrooms. The ballroom was on the third floor.
