The family home of Ulysses S. Grant the 18th President of the United States. This was the family home, of Grant's wife Julia Dent named White Haven. From 1854 to 1859 the Dents, Grants and an enslaved African-American workforce lived on the property. It was an 830 acre working farm that turned disastrous.
Why is a house called "White Haven" painted green? Previous Dent family residences in England and Maryland were called "White Haven," so the familiar name carried over to this property. The Paris Green color dates to the 1870s, and was quite popular during that era. Paint sampling and historic store ledgers confirm that this was indeed the color of the house. Some of the original paint is visible on the back porch, inside the mud room.
Grant worked for justice for all
