Whiethaven is where Ulysses Grant lived with Julia and where Julia grew up. They found it was originally painted green when they were remodeling the house. The house is located right across from Gran'ts Farm and is worth the time to check it out and...More

This National Parks run historic site is a grand slam. Although Lincoln is known as the Great Emancipator I'd view Grant as the gentleman that got it done. Lincoln was like the quarterback who gets credit for a 80 yard touchdown pass that was caught...More

I live about 2 miles from here, and had never gone to this historic site. It’s relatively new, opened in the last five years or so. It’s definitely National Park standard- well done, informative, interesting. A good overview movie of Grant and the amazing difference...More

The tour is well done and you are able to go in the house (first floor only) and the museum is beautifully done in the former stable. The rangers were knowledgeable and friendly. Allow about 2 hours for a full visit.

The NPS forest ranger was exceptional, for both his level of enthusiasm and his level of information. Yes, the paint really is Paris green.. with arsenic.

Though not a large NPS site it was well worth the trip for this history buff. The Park Rangers were very friendly and passionate about the site. The tour takes the better part of an hour and covers the house and several out buildings. You...More

The guided portion was maybe 30-45 minutes. But you can spend quite a lot more time there perusing on your own. Lovely museum at the end!
