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:

  • Free interpretive visits to the Main House are usually offered every 30 or 60 minutes beginning at 9:30 a.m. Typically the last house visit of the day begins at 4:00 p.m. Call ahead if your schedule is tight.
  • Inquire at the front desk of the Visitor Center for tour information.
  • Due to preservation and safety concerns, space is limited on each tour. For groups of 15 or more, please contact us to make tour reservations. Call 314-842-1867 ext. 229.
  • Tours may be suspended in the event of inclement weather.

Watch the 22-minute introductory film, Ulysses S. Grant: A Legacy of Freedom, 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. The exhibits, An Intricate Tapestry: The Lives of Ulysses and Julia Grant place the Grants within the context of 19th century American history, and reflect the important role Ulysses Grant played in the nation's past.
