  • It inspired me to learn more about the Civil War. Video at the beginning is worth seeing and definitely wait for the walking tour with a park ranger. 
  • Until this trip to St. Louis, we did not know that Ulysses S Grant ever lived in St. Louis! We also never knew that the FIRST woman to run for President was a Victoria Woodhull in 1872 !! This is trul...  read more »
  • It was interesting to see and learn more about Grant and his life. You can tour the first floor of the house were he lived. And there is a museum that is very informative. It is free. 
  • The property is kept in excellent condition. The employees genuinely love their work. Love how they also aim to get the younger generation interested. GPS led me directly to this address.
  • I have been here many times over the years in conjunction with my stops over to Grant's farm. Is a beautiful place to visit and a must especially if you are going to the farm as it is a piece of the Grant history puzzle for the area.
  • The historical significance of Grant's house is less than a "must see." Grant married a Busch family member and basically lived at the farm for a short while and moved on never to look behind.
  • This is the home of the Dent family; Grant's in-laws. It is called White Haven. Grant first came to Saint Louis after his education at West Point. His roommate at West Point was Frederick Dent who invited him to visit their family estate near Saint Louis. Grant accepted the invitation and because of their hospitality, became a regular visitor. The only member of the family who was not present during his early visits was the oldest daughter Julia, who was at college. Upon her return, Grant mentioned in his memoirs that he was not sure if his visits became more frequent, but they certainly became more pleasant. Grant and his wife lived in this home for a short time between the Mexican-American War and the Civil War. Things did not go well for him here and they moved to Galena, Illinois where they were living when the Civil War began. This is a beautiful place! Don't miss this place if you're ever near Saint Louis.
  • This is a must see place for anyone who enjoys civil war history, or American History in general. Aside from the very nice tour of the home, there is also an interesting museum on Grant's life and a great visitor's center and gift shop. It's free parking and admission. The staff is also very friendly.
