House at State Fairgrounds protecting Grant's birthplaceSave
Description: Postcard image of the house at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus which was constructed to protect the log cabin in which Ulysses S. Grant was born, ca. 1908. The small frame cabin in which Grant was born in 1822 was removed from its foundation in Point Pleasant in 1888. It was placed aboard a boat for exhibition in Cincinnati. Afterwards, it was moved to Columbus's Goodale Park as part of the Northwest Territory centennial. During the 1890s the cabin was returned to the fairgrounds in Columbus, where it remained until 1936,. In 1936 the cabin was disassembled and returned to its original location.
