The mausoleum of Ulysses S. Grant, this building exemplifies the
presence of social institutions and high culture in Morningside
Heights. It also
reflects the panthesitic experimentation of the period immediately
following the Civil War.
Financed by public contributions, the marble building is rendered in an
eclectic classical style reminiscent of the Pantheon. Inside, it houses
the black granite sarcophagi of Mr. and Mrs. Grant.
Undulating mosaic benches by Pedro Silva and the City
Arts Workshop  surrounding the tomb were are a community project
intended to beautify the site.
