This modest structure was the home of the famous Civil War Army Commander, Ulysses S. Grant, before his rise to fame. He and his family occupied it until the end of the war.
The description states:
GRANT’S PRE-WAR HOME. Captain U.S. Grant left this home to answer the call of his country in 1861. His wife and children waited here for his return.
–The family was of very modest means during this time before the war This house was rented by the Grant family. It has since had it’s porch removed.
This postcard likely dates from the 1960s.
