We took a tour of Whitehaven, the home of Ulysses S. Grant. The house is beautiful, but that green color. Whew! The tour guides were friendly and informative.

The National Park Service has done a wonderful job restoring the Ulysses S. Grant National Historical Site. The park rangers are very friendly and seem like the love sharing about the life of the Grant and the Dent family. The barn has been transformed into an air conditioned museum on Grants personal life & family. Another great NPS site.
The museum & house are very interesting. The staff was also very good. Too bad there aren't very many people around.
