  • Nice house. Nice grounds. The house was furnished nicely with period pieces. Some were even owned by the Grant family. Nothing really wowed me though compared to some other Presidential sites I've been to. If you are in the area, I'd say yes, you should stop. You might be a bit disappointed though if you made a dedicated trip. The drive on state routes is about as enjoyable as the destination. Make sure you hit his birthace home down the road in Point Pleasant too.
  • Beautiful place and interesting area. educational and nice to see where a prominent figure of history grew up
