Description: C. H. Rahe speaking at dedication of Grant's Cabin, October 4, 1936. Originally located in Point Pleasant, Ohio, the cabin was the birthplace of U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant. In 1888, the cabin was removed from its foundation in Point Pleasant and placed aboard a boat for exhibition in Cincinnati. It was later moved to Goodale Park (Columbus, Ohio) as part of the Northwest Territory centennial. During the 1890s the cabin was returned to the fairgrounds in Columbus where it remained until 1936. Under a legislative order, The Ohio Historical Society returned the cabin to its original site in Point Pleasant. The cabin, in poor condition, was dismantled in February 1936 before relocation. It has since been restored and opened to the public. View on Ohio Memory.
