Grant's Farm., Saint Louis: 10 reviews and 17 photos


Almost a century ago, August A. Busch Jr.'s father purchased a piece of Missouri farmland once plowed and planted by Ulysses S. Grant. Today, the country estate of the Busch family, Grant's Farm, is preserved as a home for more than 1,000 exotic animals from six continents.

The beautiful oasis can be seen courtesy of Anheuser-Busch, Inc. An open-air Eisenbahn coach winds past Mirror Lake to Grant's Cabin, which was completed in 1856 and remains today as the only structure hand built by an American president. The fence across from the cabin was constructed from 2,563 rifle barrels as a Civil War memorial.

The coach travels through The Deer Park where more than 100 species of bison, elk and antelope to zebras, llamas and ostriches can be seen. You can pet and hand feed some of the animals and attend the entertaining, educational shows featuring African elephants, parrot and birds of prey at the Tier Garten Amphitheater. Admission is free. Bring your camera and take home special memories
