This hidden secret is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. We stumbled upon it and were pleasantly surprised. The grounds are enchanting and reminiscent of yesteryear. The exhibits are informative, some are hands-on. You will learn much here.

A wonderful exhibit just miles from home. A great place to share with family or out of town guests. Sidewalks are accessible but not the home itself. Another wonderful National treasure.

Not only do you learn a great deal about General/President prior to the Civil War but this house is a great study in pre Civil War house construction. Even though much of it has been historically reconstructed it has several elements still in tack that can be used in the study of how houses were constructed by hand prior to... More

The site tells tales about the Civil War, about US Grant, about 19th Century life, about slavery, and about one of the great romances of American history: US Grant and Julia Dent. There is a house tour, there are outbuildings to explore, a barn filled with history exhibits, and a movie. And it is free.

Well worth a visit. Very educational, with a well-done introductory video. Good for the family. Do visit the museum in the visitor center after touring the grounds. The Budweiser Clydesdales are nearby.

We knew about Grant's Farm, owned and operated by the Anheuser Busch Co., but didn't know this historic site was across the street until we drove up to it. It is a very modern and well maintained park. All of the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. If you enjoy American history, you'll love this park.

It is nice to see because it is a national park. You don't need more than 2 hours for it. Our guide did a nice job. The kids can get a junior ranger badge.

We arrived to late to get the personal tour, but the Ranger at the desk was very informative and friendly. The movie was also very nice and the self guided tour nice as well. We should have come a little earlier to do the tour, however, it was still worth the visit. Highly recommend this little piece of history.
