About the Grant Cottage

     In this Adirondack Cottage Gen. Ulysses S. Grant died of throat cancer on July 23, 1885. He had arrived at the cottage from New York City on June 16, 1885, with his family, servants, and doctors; he was able to complete his memoirs in the short time he had left.


    Living Room Image  Today, the cottage remains essentially the same as during the Grant family's stay.  Visitors tour the downstairs of the cottage, viewing the original furnishings, decorations, and personal items belonging to Grant, including the bed where he died, and floral arrangements that remain from Grant's August 4th funeral.

Eastern OverlookThere is also a short path to the Eastern Outlook, which commands a spectacular view of the Hudson Valley, from the Adirondacks in the north, the Green Mountains of Vermont to the east, and the Catskills to the south.


The Visitors Center offers interpretive displays and exhibits, a short introductory film, and a gift shop filled with books, memorabilia, and numerous Civil War-related items.
      

Grant Cottage is owned by
  the State of New York 
and
opened to the public by
The Friends of the Ulysses S. Grant Cottage, Inc.




The Grant Cottage is one of few New York State historic sites operating without a State Parks employee present.   Its small staff complemented by a strong, dedicated volunteer base keeps the Cottage running throughout the season.

The Friends of the Ulysses S. Grant Cottage, Inc. a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, truly appreciates its volunteers, members, and sponsors!
