As newlyweds, young army officer Ulysses S. Grant and his wife, Julia Dent Grant, lived in this Detroit house from 1849 to 1850.
Julia D. and Ulysses S. Grant Home
Corner of Orleans and Wilkins Strees
Detroit's Eastern Market
The house is under extensive renovation and is closed to the public.
We are seeking input from community members, educators, historians and Grant enthusiasts on how to use the home. We plan to hold town hall meetings and focus groups beginning in the fall of 2021.
