NYS Parks Centennial Community Day Celebration!


Celebrate 100 years of New York State Parks and Historic Sites at Grant Cottage Historic Site! This free family-friendly event will feature music, food, exhibits, reenactors, entertainment, children's activities, and walkthroughs of the historic Grant Cottage. All are invited to visit the final home of Civil War general and two-term American president Ulysses S. Grant where he finished his memoirs in 1885. The cottage located on top of Mount McGregor has been preserved as a time-capsule memorial ever since Grant's death and features original furnishings and unique artifacts. A visitor center onsite features a gift shop, exhibits, and a video. The historic site grounds feature historic walking paths, interpretive panels, and a dramatic overlook of the upper Hudson River Valley. A free cell phone audio tour of the grounds and a scavenger hunt are available to all visitors.
