The General Grant National Memorial is the final resting place of Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th president of the United States, and of his wife Julia. It is a classical domed mausoleum located in Riverside Drive, at 122nd Street, in Riverside Park. Its classical design was inspired by the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus in the ancient Achaemenid Empire. The cornerstone was laid in 1892, and the tomb was completed on April 27, 1897, Grant's 75th birthday.
