Welcome to Indiana’s Territorial Past, located in Vincennes and Knox County.

Indiana’s first city is the perfect getaway for history enthusiasts.

Walnut Grove Festival is Oct 16-17

Grouseland is the elegant Georgian/Federal home built in the early 1800s, which served as the home of William Henry Harrison and his family when he was Governor of the Indiana Territory. Years later, Harrison became the 9th President of the United States.

Today, this historic landmark in Vincennes is the site of the Walnut Grove Festival, an event filled with music, storytelling, food, fun and black walnuts!

Featured speakers present Friday evening at Grouseland during a Harrison-style dinner with cash bar. Saturday’s events offer demonstrations on fiber spinning and instruction on crocheting, weaving, rug hooking, food preservation and more. Period vehicles will be on display and food, craft and antique vendors will be on site, too.

Grouseland is located at 3 Scott St. in Vincennes, IN. Admission is free. Monetary donations to sustain Grouseland are appreciated.

Friday’s dinner is $25/person and begins at 6 p.m.
