Join CMT and fellow Ten Toes participants for a special guided tour of the Ulysses S. Grant Historic Site. Park Rangers will meet the group at the bus stop and lead them along the 1.5 mile trail to the park where walkers will have the opportunity to watch a 16-minute introductory film, A Place Called White Haven, shown in the Visitor Center theater; walk the historic space and learn about the people and property in the 19th century; and spend time in the interpretive museum, located in the historic stable. The exhibits, An Intricate Tapestry: The Lives of Ulysses and Julia Grant place the Grants within the context of 19th century American history, and reflect the important role Ulysses Grant played in the nation’s past.
