Ulysses S Grant National Historic Site [MO]

The Ulysses S Grant National Historic Site commemorates the lives of Ulysses S Grant (1822-1885), general-in-chief of the Union army and 18th President of the United States, and his wife Julia Dent. Dent's family home, White Haven, is the centerpiece of the park. Other structures include an interpretive museum housed in the historic Grant stable and a visitors' center.

The site offers a 16-minute introductory film, guided tours of White Haven, Junior Ranger activities, and a history reading program compliant with state educational standards.
