If you thought US Grant was just some drunken butcher, you should visit here and take a look at the man. Much more well rounded than I thought, and pretty forward thinking as well. Some maps will take you wrong way, just circle back around...More

When we first visited this site, there was no Visitors Center and supporting buildings. Very impressive arrangement and the Ranger who started as a volunteer when he was 15 is very helpful and most knowledgeable. See the movie and explore the site.

Rangers were good at giving historical information and answering questions. The site is small but has great exhibits. Video is 23 minutes, tour of the house every half hour, and interactive exhibits are good. Site is free.
