Thursday, June 8, 2023 – Grant’s Trail Hike and Ulysses S. Grant Historic Site Tour

Get ready to learn more about the History of St. Louis with a walk along Grant’s Trail. After fueling up at local breakfast favorite Yolklore, we’ll walk 1.5 miles along Grant’s Trail to the Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site. Ulysses S. Grant is known as the victorious Civil War general who saved the Union and the 18th President of the United States. He first met Julia Dent, his future wife, at her family home on this site, named White Haven. From 1854 to 1859 the Dents, Grants and an enslaved African American workforce lived on the property.
