The Man Who Baptized Grant

The life of the Reverend Dr. John Philip Newman, clergyman, popular orator, author and world traveler, will be outlined through his life’s religious and political activities, throughout the United States and abroad, for the Methodist Church.  Join presenter and Grant Cottage Site Manager Dave Hubbard to learn what his ties to the Grant family were and his connections to upstate New York.

The suggested donation for Grant Cottage Porch Programs is $5 per person. These programs are made possible thanks to a grant from the Adirondack Trust Community Fund. Our events are supported with funding from the New York State Park and Trail Partnership Program (NYSPTPP) and New York’s Environmental Protection Fund. The NYSPTPP is administered by Parks & Trails New York, in partnership with the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
