Historic General Dodge House
This is the former 14-room Victorian home of General Grenville M. Dodge, who has been called the greatest railroad builder of all time. The historic home is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and on Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
I really like that it is so well furnished. It looks like you could move in and live there.
Many of the furnishings are original to the family, the rest are antiques of the period.
There is a lot of original art work as well as other decorations.
The architecture is amazing considering that it was built when that was thought of as "The Wild West".
I loved the tour and the house. The dining room opened to the parlor and the mirrors, which were embedded with diamond dust, reflected into one another in that beautiful setting so that your image and the rooms appeared to be reflected infinitely - as though you, too, were caught in a moment of timelessness.
General Dodge's office was authentic and the Winchester rifle housed about the mantel seemed as though it were new. The masculine atmosophere and the beauty of the house reflected an elegant wealth and tastefulness and when you were near the servant's quarters on the third floor where the ballroom was with its polished hardwood floor and beautiful pianoforte, you could almost hear an echo of a dance that may have been held two hundred years ago.
It was wonderful and so was my tour guide.
