imageAs I’ve written about previously- the former home of U.S. Grant sits on the former site of the State Fairgrounds in Detroit. It is forgotten nowadays. It used to be that tourists could walk through the structure. I have only seen the house from the rear- looking through a fence. Tom Watson recently visited the property to photograph it both on the outside and inside.

I talked to a young man about the house and the important role Grant played in winning the war. He didn’t know about the Grant house. He didn’t know much about Grant. ┬áHe wondered how the house could be so neglected. I didn’t have an answer.
