Doors Open: Ulysses S. Grant Home State Historic Site

This event has passed.


Tour the home of the United States 18th president, Ulysses S. Grant!

On Aug. 18, 1865, Galena celebrated the return of its Civil War hero Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. Following a jubilant procession with much flag waving and speeches, a group of Galena citizens presented the General with a handsomely furnished house on Bouthillier Street. It was opened to the public in 1904. Furnishings are original. The house is now managed by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency as the U.S. Grant Home State Historic Site.
