U.S. Grant Cottage National Historic Landmark is the final home of Ulysses S. Grant, Civil War Commanding General of the U.S. Army, 18th U.S. President and beloved American public figure. Open May - October.
Grant Cottage is a hidden treasure in the foothills of the Adirondacks. It sits on top of Mt. McGregor and overlooks the Adirondack Mountains to the north, the Green Mountains to the east, and the Catskills to the south. The view is breathtaking and was the last view of our area that General Ulysses S. Grant saw before his death in this historic cottage. The Cottage has remained virtually unchanged since 1885 and still houses the bed on which he died and the funeral arrangements are still intact.
