Grant Boyhood Home

grantboyhood
Land of Grant
Charted in 1970, the Association seeks to preserve and promote the life and legacy of US Grant, both as general and statesman, and as a young boy. In partnership with the state of Ohio, the historical sites of his boyhood home and schoolhouse are staffed and maintained by the Association. Through living history, volunteer outreach, and public presentations, we strive to keep local history alive and approachable. The culmination of this is our annual US Grant Days, held every year on his birthday, where we explore the life and times of our native son.

Profile Description

Boyhood home of Civil War general and President Ulysses S. Grant in Georgetown, Ohio. Grant lived here from 1823 to 1839. Jesse R. Grant, his father, built the original part fronting Water Street in 1824 and later built an addition fronting Main Cross Street, now Grant Avenue.  The National Register property was restored by Mr. and Mrs. John Ruthven in 1982. At that time, it was designated a National Historic Landmark. It is now the property of the state of Ohio and is maintained by the U.S. Grant Homestead Association.
