We learned much about President Grant, his early life and family. Our two guides obviously enjoyed their job and made us very welcome. Especially liked young Ulysses speaking to us. more »
I visited this museum on a brief break from a business conference and it really fulfilled my craving for local history. The caretaker had some really great stories of Grant's childhood in the house, his exploits and his friendships with other interesting local people. The house had been well restored and even had a few pieces of furniture owned by the Grant family even though hey hadn't lived there since Ulysses Grant graduated West Point. The real shocker though was at the end of the tour. The guide opened a door to a small room at the back of the house and inside was a simple little theater with an animatronic young Ulysses Grant! The quality of the movement and materials was reminiscent of Disney - very well done!
Visited here on a presidential tour of the local sites. It was quite underwhelming. Tour guide had no idea what she was doing and gave us basically no information. The birthplace was better. If you can only do one go to the birthplace In point pleasant.
