Jordan House - Underground Railroad
The Jordan House was built in 1850 by James Jordan, a cattle rancher, businessman and politician. It became a stop on the Underground Railroad. It is said that John Brown stayed there several times. The rooms are very nicely restored with period furniture, some of which is original to the house. It is operated today by the West Des Moines Historical Society - check with them for information about tours at 515 225-1286. It is located on Fuller Road just east of Grand Avenue.
