U.S. Grant Boyhood Home and School House

The Grant Boyhood Home in Georgetown, Ohio,  was the home of Ulysses S. Grant, 18th president of the United States, from 1823, when Grant was one year old, until 1839, when he left to attend West Point.  Ulysses Grant lived in this home longer than any other house during his lifetime. 

A multi-year $1.4 million restoration of the Grant Boyhood Home was completed in 2013. The restoration project returned Ulysses S. Grant’s boyhood home to its appearance in 1839, the year he left for West Point.
