Special events held at the site during the year include a Night Walk, a popular summer living history program; Harvest Time, a festival where visitors can participate in activities from 19th century farm life in the fall; Touring Grant's St. Louis, a ranger-guided bus tour of Grant-related sites in October and Holidays at White Haven, a day of holiday traditions and children's crafts from the 19th century held in December. Hardscrabble, the Grants' first home is located across the road from White Haven on the Anheuser-Busch-owned Grant's Farm property. Grant built Hardscrabble on 80 acres of the White Haven plantation given to the couple as a wedding gift after he resigned from the military to spend more time with his wife and their children. The White Haven staff conducts an interpretive program on special days each year when Hardscrabble is open to the public. The Grant's Farm animal preserve is open free-of-charge from April through November.
