Title
U.S. Grant Birthplace
Caption
The exterior of the Ulysses S. Grant Birthplace in Point Pleasant, Ohio. Hiram Ulysses Grant was born in this one-story, timber-frame home on April 27, 1822 to Jesse and Hannah Simpson Grant. The Grants settled in Point Pleasant the previous year, and Jesse took charge of the tannery located near the cottage. Now restored, the building remained in relatively good condition through the 1880s (AL07013).
