President U.S. Grant’s home in Detroit to be moved


Hmmm, I did not even know this house existed. Very cool…

A house Ulysses S. Grant lived in during his time in Detroit is being evicted from the State Fairgrounds and will be hauled clear across town this summer, likely near Eastern Market.

The house was built in 1837, making it one of the oldest structures in the city. For decades, the house was furnished in period styles and opened to the public as an attraction during the annual State Fair. But now that the fairgrounds are closed and the state is selling the land to developers, Grant’s one-time digs have to go.
