The Ulysses S. Grant Cottage in Wilton,NY is seeking tour guides at this unique historic treasure just north of Saratoga Springs.

The cottage is the location where General and former President Ulysses S. Grant spent his final days, writing his memoirs while struggling with throat cancer. The structure, furniture, decor, etc. are all remarkably authentic. Tour guides lead visitors through the few open rooms, focusing on the final days of the general's life. Training, a detailed lesson plan, and supplemental material is provided to all volunteers. Background knowledge of General Grant and the Civil War is a plus, yet not required.

The Cottage is open Wednesday to Sunday, Memorial Day through Labor Day (plus Tuesdays during track season). And open weekends from Labor Day through Columbus Day.
