Side A: Ulysses S. Grant Boyhood Home. U.S. Grant, general-in-chief of the Armies of the United States, 18th president and first native Ohioan to be elected chief executive, lived in this house from 1824 to 1839. Jesse R. Grant, his father, built the original part fronting Water Street in 1824 and later built an addition fronting Main Cross Street, now Grant Avenue. "This place remained my home, until at the age of seventeen, in 1839, I went to West Point." Memoirs of U.S. Grant Side B: Same. Same
