About Us

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a wonderful example of Victorian Italianate architecture, The Granger House Victorian Museum is the only restored middle-class family home in the Cedar Rapids area. Occupied by a single family for nearly 100 years, the house contains many of its original furnishings and is arranged to reflect the lifestyle of a successful, late 19th-century middle-class family. 

 The Granger House Victorian Museum offers weekly tours, frequent programs, and several community outreach opportunities.

Looking for Amelia

A History of Mysteries: The Flying Dutchman

For centuries seamen have talked of an eerily glowing ship, hailing vessels for help with messages of doom.  Some of these reportings have had tragic ends while others have made it safely to shore to tell of their experience with the notorious Flying Dutchman- a ship and crew rumored to haunt the loneliest stretches of sea.  But where did this ship and crew come from and why do they still float endlessly along?  Join Paul for another installment of A History of Mysteries as he discusses The Flying Dutchman.

Help Our Cause

Want to join us in making a difference?  We're raising money to renovate the roof on The Granger House Victorian Museum, and any donation will help make an impact. 

The project involves restoring the cedar-shingle roofs of the Granger House Victorian Museum and accompanying Carriage House.  Both are progressively deteriorating, which places these historic structures – both of which are on the National Register of Historic Places – at risk. Repair and restoration will strictly follow the US Secretary of Interior Standards and Guidelines for Historic Preservation.

This preservation project also allows us to continue our mission:  "We exist to engage the community and to make Iowa’s past relevant to its present".  We also strive to promote heritage tourism, by preserving a unique example of Midwestern middle-class family life in the 19th Century.  By restoring the roofs, we also preserve the materials, and the craftsmanship, that created this community generations ago.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us at The Granger House.
