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.

The Underground Railroad in Iowa

The Underground Railroad is responsible for saving thousands of lives- reportedly between 40,000 and 100,000. This network of homes and other safe havens, committed to freeing enslaved African Americans, stretched from the very furthest reaches of Massachusetts all the way to the Western part of Iowa. Yes, you read that right- Iowa was involved in the Underground Railroad! The Granger House will be welcoming our friend Loree, a Maronite with family ties to one of the homes that made freedom possible for so many, to share stories of this heroic effort.

Damsel in Defense with Angie Williams- A FREE Event

 On average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States — more than 12 million women and men over the course of a year. And while attacks on men and women by a stranger (or somebody where a relationship is unknown) are down considerably over the last 50 years, the risk still remains. 

So what are you doing to protect yourself? 

What are you doing to protect your family? 

Damsel in Defense, a company whose mission is to equip, empower, and educate women to protect themselves and their families, wants to make sure you're prepared. Angie Williams, a Damsel in Defense Mentor, will be joining us to share some startling information, but more importantly some education and equipment that can help keep you safe! And because The Granger House is committed to improving the lives of those in our community, this event is free for everybody- men and women. If you'd like to preview Damsel in Defenses's products and information, you can go to https://www.mydamselpro.net/ANGIEWILLIAMS/.

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.
