My wife and I visited the Grant home on our recent visit to Galena. House tours begin on the half-hour and are now limited to 16 people because of COVID. Our hostess was Katherine and she did a excellent presentation on the history of Grant and this house. I did note that she said nothing about the corruption which plagued Grant's presidency--much of it was because he trusted old military colleagues too readily. The staff carefully space out the group going through the home so that social distancing can be maintained. The house has many Grant furnishings. Sadly, because distancing cannot be maintained on the second floor--where the five bedrooms are--that area of the house is closed. Despite that, the house is worth a visit.
