This Italianate home was presented to U.S. Grant in 1865.
Tour the home of the United States 18th president, Ulysses S. Grant. On Aug. 18, 1865, Galena celebrated the return of their 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.
