The Andrew John Volstead House, located at 163 Ninth Avenue, Granite Falls, in the U.S. state of Minnesota was the home of Andrew Volstead (1860-1947). He personified prohibition to the American people, having authored the National Prohibition Act of 1919. The home is a wood-frame structure with a large two-story stairwell tower that was added on by Volstead shortly after he purchased the property. During Volstead's time, the first floor had a large screened porch; this has now been replaced by an open porch. The interior is adorned with oak woodwork and stained glass.[3]
