Description:

In this Adirondack Cottage Gen. Ulysses S. Grant died of throat cancer on July 23, 1885. He had arrived at the cottage from New York City on June 16, 1885, with his family, servants, and doctors; he was able to complete his memoirs in the short time he had left. 
Today, the cottage remains essentially the same as during the Grant family's stay.  Visitors tour the downstairs of the cottage, viewing the original furnishings, decorations, and personal items belonging to Grant, including the bed where he died, and floral arrangements that remain from Grant's August 4th funeral. 
The Visitors Center offers interpretive displays and exhibits, a short introductory film, and a gift shop filled with books, memorabilia, and numerous Civil War-related items.
