Southwestern Ohio Presidential tour ideas

In the spirit of today’s Presidents’ Day holiday let’s fire up the tour mobile and head down the Ohio River to Ohio’s Brown and Clermont County for “A Land of Grant” tour. We’ll be stopping at 3 locations honoring Civil War general and our 18th president Ulysses Simpson.

The Land of Grant Tour takes us to Grant's Boyhood Home and the Grant Schoolhouse both located in Georgetown OH and his birthplace nestled on the banks of the Ohio River at Point Pleasant OH.

These venues are easily accessible from the Tri-State and with travel time I’d plan on a solid half day trip. All three sites are operated by the Ohio Historical Society.
If you can make it a full day of touring there are plenty of Underground Railroad sites, covered

bridges even a quilt barn self driving tour. Visit the Brown County tourism and/or Clermont County tourism offices for more information.

Happy travels.
