Change in closing days
Starting September 22nd 2014 we will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. The site will be opened Wednesday through Sunday until further notice. Operating hours will remain the same.
Financial contributions toward the preservation, education, and special public programming at General Grant National Memorial are gratefully accepted. Small cash donations may be made at the donation box located at the site's visitor center. Larger donations are accepted by check or money order made payable to the "National Park Service" and sent to the following address:
If you have a specific park program that you would like to target for your donation, please write a letter or note specifying where you would like it to be directed. If you make no specific request, the funds will be deposited in a "general" donation account, which typically funds educational and interpretive programming at General Grant National Memorial.
Did You Know?
ULYSSES S. GRANT, THE MOST ILLUSTRIOUS WARRIOR AND STATESMAN OF MODERN TIMES, THE CAPTAIN WHOSE INVINCIBLE SWORD SAVED THE REPUBLIC FROM DISMEMBERMENT, MADE LIBERTY THE LAW OF THE LAND; A MAN TOO BROAD FOR PREJUDICE, TOO HUMANE TO DESPISE THE HUMBLEST, TOO GREAT TO BE SMALL AT ANY POINT. IN HIM THE NEGRO FOUND A PROTECTOR, THE INDIAN A FRIEND, A VANQUISHED FOE A BROTHER, AN IMPERILED NATION A SAVIOR. - Frederick Douglass
