Fees & Reservations
Entrance into the site is free. Visits inside the Main House are also free; however, tickets (time-specific "calling cards") are required, and are available at the Visitor Center. Advanced reservations are strongly recommended for groups of 10 or more. Call (314)842-1867 to make reservations, as well as for additional information and specific details about group program offerings.
Activities which are not part of the park's normal operation (such as professional filming, organization meetings, and 1st Amendment activities) require a Special Use Permit. You must submit an application (see link below) along with a non-refundable $75.00 fee for consideration of your request. Advanced contact with the park management staff is encouraged to clarify this procedure and answer any questions.
Note: Due to temporary exhibits and other park activities, certain facilities may be unavailable. Call the park for the most current information.

White Haven was named after the Dent family home in Maryland, although it was never painted white during the nineteenth century. When President Grant owned the property, he had the house painted Paris Green, a typical Victorian-era color.
