Grant's Clock

The clock at Grant Cottage still reads 8:08—the time of Ulysses S. Grant’s death on the morning of July 23, 1885.

Grant Cottage is owned by New York State and operated through a special arrangement by the Friends of Grant Cottage. The Friends have a full slate of events lined up for Saturday for their annual Remembrance Day commemoration.
