Historic Dodge House
In 1869, Dodge built his handsome Victorian home at 605 Third Street at the cost of $35,000, a lavish sum for that day. The fourteen-room, three-story mansion stands on a high terrace overlooking the Missouri Valley, and displays such architectural features as parquet floors, cherry, walnut and butternut woodwork, and a number of "modern" conveniences quite unusual for the period. Both the Dodge House Ballroom and gardens are available for rent. The Ballroom is perfect for an intimate wedding or event, and the beautiful gardens are in bloom throughout the spring, summer, and early fall.
