"Public Art - Ulysses S. Grant at City Hall" Saint Louis Favorite Tip by yooperprof
Saint Louis General: 94 reviews and 104 photos
Favorite thing: Civil War General and 18th United State President Ullysses Grant married a woman from a prominent St. Louis family - Julia Dent - and for several years operated a farm just outside the city limits. He is commemorated with the fine statue, the 1888 work of Robert Porter Bringhurst (1855-1924). It is said that this was the first Grant statue to be unveiled in the USA, and the ceremony attracted a crowd of thousands.
It's located on the grounds of the St. Louis City Hall, at the corner of 12th and Market.
