Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site

Colonel Dent named the property White Haven after his family home in Maryland. Paint analysis indicated the home was painted various colors in the nineteenth century, including Paris Green with a dark green trim, as seen on this wall and door. This physical evidence, along with a ledger sheet from a local store where the paint ingredients were purchased, dates the Paris Green to 1874, during Grant's ownership. A typical color of the Victorian period, it is not what most visitors today expect to see, given the historic name of the property.
