Grant's Farm

Grant's Farm.  Historical home of Ulysses Grant located in St. Louis, Missouri. Site provides tourist information about the 281-acre wildlife preserve now owned by Anheuser-Busch.

From the site:

Grant's Farm is a 281 acre wildlife preserve and historical site located just south of the city of St. Louis, Missouri and is operated by Anheuser-Busch, Inc. The Farm is home to hundreds of exotic animals from around the world. The Farm takes its name from our 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant. In the 1850s, Ulysses S. Grant farmed a portion of the 281 acres. The land, which later became the ancestral home of the Busch family, today is preserved as a living symbol of the family's love for animals and Anheuser-Busch's commitment to wildlife conservation and preservation.
