The Grant Boyhood Home in Georgetown, Ohio was where Ulysses S. Grant lived from 1823 until 1839,[3] when he left for the United States Military Academy at West Point.

History[edit]

Jesse and Hanna Grant built the two story cottage in 1823. They later added an addition onto the home in 1828. Ulysses left home in 1839.

In 1976, the house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1] Nine years later, it was designated a National Historic Landmark.[2]
