There are many things to see and do at Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site. Whether you have half an hour or half a day, visit us and experience the history and beauty of White Haven.
Visit the Main House:
Watch the 16-minute introductory film, A Place Called White Haven, shown in the Visitor Center theater.
Walk the historic trace and learn about the people and property in the 19th century.
You can spend minutes or hours in the interpretive museum, located in the historic stable.
