You are correct. Busch bought the cabin after it had been used at the St. Louis World's Fair by a coffee company. (They had moved it from Webster Groves where it had been moved by some real estate developers.) Busch had it erected on his estate property facing Gravois Road just west of the creek that Grant Road runs along. The whole thing became Gran't Farm. White Haven, the plantation house of Grant's in-laws, is east of Grant road and south of the Clydsdale pasture. BTW, as if all of this wasn't BTW, Grant met his wife because he was invited to the plantation by his West point roommate, Frederick Dent. Dent, who had remained in the Army, became Grant's Aide-de-camp in the Civil War after grant rejoined the Army.
You're up @InspectorJon.

There's Mount Vernon, Monticello, and 'Hardscrabble'.

Looks Roman, could be Greek or Egyptian but feels more Roman.

There's date palms on the left horizon, which implies we're probably not in Europe?

And there's a modern cut-out image of a human behind the third pillar on the right, which makes me think we're probably not in a Muslim country as Islam isn't too keen on depictions of human figures.

Also all the visitors are in Western dress, which you probably wouldn't see in a Muslim country.

So Roman, not in Europe and not Muslim doesn't give you too many options until you come round to Israel?

One of the more popular and fascinating parts of the city was the public latrine with its plumbing and flowing water to remove waste from the city. The development of this kind of facility was crucial for being able to create a large, healthy community.

Southern Sierra Nevada mountains, appears to be looking east or southeast. Perhaps that is Las Vegas on the horizon. ;) Or one of scattered small towns along 395?

I thought that at first, but the escapement of the southern Sierra looking east is pretty dramatic and you don't really get the foothills that you see in the center of the picture. Definitely Southern California, though.

There's not many places where the pines and chaparral transition to desert mountains like that. I couldn't place what part of the Transverse Ranges it was initially.

This one might be quick.
