Location of Point Pleasant, Ohio

Point Pleasant is a small unincorporated community in southern Monroe Township, Clermont County, Ohio, United States. It is located on the Ohio River, around 25 miles southeast of Cincinnati. U.S. Route 52 passes through Point Pleasant, where it intersects State Route 232.

Point Pleasant was founded in 1813.[1] In 1833, Point Pleasant contained about two stores, 30 houses, and 130 inhabitants.[2]

Point Pleasant was the birthplace of U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant. The one-story cottage where he was born was taken by barge on a tour across the country, then by rail to Columbus, Ohio where it was displayed at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. It was returned to Point Pleasant in 1936, where it has been restored with period furniture and opened to tours.
