Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site
7400 Grant Road
St. Louis, MO 63123
The Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site encompasses five historic structures -- with exhibits -- from the core of a 850-acre plantation owned by General Grant. The personal life and the partnership with his wife, Julia Dent Grant, provide the context for understanding his military leadership as Union general during the Civil War and his subsequent presidency. The historic barn now houses a 4, 000-square-foot interpretive museum.
