When Ulysses S. Grant lived at White Haven in the 1850s, the entire property was 850 acres. It included cleared fields, orchards, large wooded areas, and hills cut by streams and creeks. Although most of the property was later sold and the main house privately owned until 1986, several historic structures remain today and serve as tangible links to life at White Haven in the 19th century. Five remaning historic structures are part of the visitor experience at Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site: the White Haven home, horse stable, ice house, chicken house, and summer kitchen.
